Pros • Runs on both embedded PC platforms and normal PCs

In Part 1 of this review I described m0nowall's background and how to install it on both the Soekris net4501 embedded PC platform and normal PCs. In this second and final part, I'll take you through configuring m0n0wall, a review of some of its features, some performance testing and a look at what's next for m0n0wall.
