"With the self-stated goal of "simplifying linux", NetMAX has introduced a trio of "Net appliance" products: WebServer, FireWall and FileServer. You can also get all three rolled into one, along with additional network management tools, in the Professional version of the software. Unlike most net-appliance makers, NetMAX concentrates on software, leaving the hardware for the user to supply."

"NetMAX makes the software available in both Red Hat Linux and FreeBSD versions, both of which, they claim, can be installed in under 15 minutes. As with most appliance machines, common administrative functions can be performed through a web browser...."

"The web interface is very impressive. It is a series of CGI scripts that allow you to update and change a wide array of daemons on the server. Our company has been using the Cobalt Network's RAQ Servers for more than a year, so I was prepared to find similar features with the NetMAX WebServer. Instead, I found a much wider breadth of services."
