Firewalls The IPFire project development team has announced the first beta release of an ARM port of version 2.11 of its open source firewall. IPFire is a Linux server distribution that can be booted from a CD or USB drive, or installed to a computer's internal drive. The port of IPFire contains all of the same features as the standard full releases, but can be run on any Marvel Kirkwood system-on-a-chip (SoC) such as that found in the SheevaPlug or compatible ARM-based processor.
