Mmmh, I thought that thread was long buried :)
I also run iptables both at work and home. Of course, the setup at
work is slightly more complicated since we use a variety of VLANs and
both v4/v6 filtering. I still think it is a much better product than
Cisco PIX. I also run pf on another bridging firewall at work and it
also works nicely and shifts packets quite swiftly.
