Thank  you for making this wonderful F/OSS project.

I am currently using m0n0wall as our companies firewall, replacing a Sonicwall that would have cost us a fortune in modules to get near as many features as m0n0wall has for free.  We use the traffic shaping, as well as the PPTP VPN with RADIUS authentication, and we are currently enjoying the much higher traffic through put that the m0n0wall has.  This has allowed us to add additional services to our network such as video streaming of our security cameras.  Also, we are currently at 58 days of uptime, which was a number that the Sonicwall could not have touched.  It required near weekly reboots to keep it from bogging down.

Thank you for m0n0wall!

Replaced a Netgear Firewall that hanged every time on almost every occasion. No support from the manufacturer of course.

After I bought an Alix System Board, a CF Card and and Enclosure, within 10 minutes I not only assembled the machine, but it was also up and running just 'Out of the Box'. Now I've tweaked it a little more with VPN-Users and a tunnel configuration for use in a Veterinary Hospital. It's up now for  4 days, 08:27 Hours and counting (fingers crossed  Tongue).

Love it!

I'll jump on the Love Bandwagon  Grin

Been using m0n0wall for many years now. The only downtime it has is between upgrades for new versions. Uptimes that I measure hundreds of days just goes to show how well coded and polished m0n0wall is. Sure, we can always talk about "wish it did this" feature, but for what it does already, blows away everything else out there that I've tried for stability and speed and price.

An old PC from years ago gets a new life as a m0n0wall machine that just needs some network cards, a fan on the CPU and any HDD just to boot it (before it powers down via power management, very ingenious for power saving).

I can't say enough good things about it except donate to the cause and keep things going!

Is there a more specific spot for these "testimonials"??

We have m0n0wall running on old Nokia IP650s (dual 450 intels/512mb Ram) at 2 central locations and soekris netXXXX nodes (dependant upon load requirements) running at many remote sites up and down the eastern seaboard. All adding up to a very sound multi-hub VPN for a corporate production environment. We have been production for just over 90 days as of this writing. The entire system, including, planning, implementation, and operations costs for the next 3 years is about 1/20th (no really 1/20th) of a single VPN concentrator from the various "Corporate Vendors" on an "apples to apples" basis.

Excellent Work!!

Very happy with MonoWall, too !

I have tried Zyxel (correct), D-Link (big shi**), pfSense (more features, but huge and slow compared to m0n0 and dont work good with firewall states) but m0n0 is the best !

Small, light, quick to boot, powerfull and stable : very good job, thank at all.

I use it on an Alix board (, great boards at good price).

The only thing I wonder is the developpemnent, actually for Alix boards the m0no version is beta (but works great), and some features are missing (auto PPPoE deconnection for exemple).

One more time thank all developpers for this great software Smiley
