Smoothwall is a linux based implementation but it has the support of the company behind it or even a fully built hardware solution running their software.

@ James, can you just give me a quick lowdown, does it run on any hardware like Smoothwall or do they provide appliances?
@ plexer, what sort of hardware spec might you use for a Smoothwall in a school with approx 500 PC's?

I run corporate guardian on a HP Proliant DL140 G2 2.8GHZ Xeon, 4GB RAM, 80GB hard drive.
The smoothie guys would be able to help you spec something if you need though.

I'm an ISA fan too... doesn't require a great spec either!

Just thought i'd post on here since I am now back in sunny Leeds - been mooching about in Southampton for the best part of the week, working out what our dev team get to do next.
If you want SmoothWall for firewall only - you'd be hard pushed to underspec. We've not done much to slow it down over the years, and whilst we now recommend more than 64Mb of RAM... it's still possible to be quite sparing. TBH, and server built in the last 4 years will be fine.
If you want web filtering.. thats a slightly different kettle o' fish, and yes, would be best to drop me a line with specific requirements as one size definitely doesn't fit all
