Selecting a Soekris
I'm going to buy a Soekris to replace my aging X20 that I've been using as gateway for 1½ years. It's running from a standard laptop drive, so I've been lucky that it has handled running continuously for that long, but I better replace it before it dies.
So, I'm thinking of something like this:
- Soekris net4801-60
- Hitachi Travelstar 7K100 80 GB harddisk.
- Perhaps a vpn1411, since I'm thinking of disabling encryption on my wireless network and use VPN for encryption.
I'm in favor of just the net4801 and disk. I can always buy the VPN crypto card later if I need it.
