"Version 0.9.8 of SmoothWall - Britain's most successful Open Source project to date, has been released. The latest version of the acclaimed security device software attacks the traditional marketplace of the SoHO and SME security marketplace at a price that gives it a major advantage - it is available for free download under the GNU General Public Licence."

"SmoothWall already has over 300,000 users in 21 countries and has become a phenomenon that is taking PC networks by storm. SmoothWall allows PC users in home, SoHO and office environments to build a web managed, secure internet router that provides a totally secured network internet connection. SmoothWall 0.9.8 includes features only normally seen in router hardware products and software firewall packages that can cost up to several thousand pounds."

"SmoothWall 0.9.8 adds to the four previously released versions of the product by including automatic probing and set-up for popular ISDN devices, multiple Ethernet devices (also allowing the router to be used for website hosting, and other situations where a demilitarised zone is required), IPSEC Virtual Private Network (VPN) capabilities, and support for ADSL and Cable users."
