I'm searching for a router/firewall appliance to run as a virtual machine in front of a larger number of VMs.
What I need:
* L2TP for remote user access
* Ethernet/L2 VPN for hosting ActiveDirectory servers for customers
So far I've tested Vyatta, but I don't want to use it becuase the WebUI is not included in the free license (and their licensning is a bit inflexible). I've also tested pfSense, but I dislike the fact that their L2TP server doesn't support DNS suffix, which I kind of need to get all Microsoft SMB shares working nicely.
Any recommendations? I prefer if it's open source/free or relativley affordable (less than $400).
You should probably download and try Halon's https://solutionexchange.vmware.com/store/products/halon-vsr-virtual-security-router 'cause it supports both L2 tunnels and search domain over VPN. There's a free version.
