I set up a firewall for more than 300 users, a DMZ with a public webserver, webmail and MX on a PII-350MHz with 128 MB RAM. On another client, I set up a firewall for 50 users with a Pentium 90MHz with 64MB RAM. > dual or single processor ? One. Don't waste you money. A firewall isn't very CPU intensive. And given the fact that ipf works at the IP stack level, I don't think you can have more than one thread active at a time messing with the IP data structures.
