CD Bootable OpenBSD firewall – the project allows you to set up a full featured OpenBSD firewall without the use of a hard disk. The system boots from a CDROM and stores configuration information on either a floppy, or a USB mass storage device, such as a “pen drive” or a USB CompactFlash reader.

The CD also contains a simple install script, to allow you populate a floppy or UMASS device with a basic firewall configuration. Simply boot the CD, select the media you wish to use, and answer some straightforward questions.

The latest version, based on OpenBSD 3.5, adds several new features. The firewall now provides PPTP VPN and a caching nameserver out of the box.

– OpenBSD 3.5 NAT Firewall using PF
– No hard disk needed
– Automated setup
– Can run with all media Read-Only
– DHCP on internal LAN
– Nameserver and Cache

System requirements:
– x86 compatible processor
– 64M ram bare minimum (all writable filesystems are on ramdisks, and there’s no swap)
– CD-ROM drive
– floppy drive, or umass device (note the current issue with umass)
– 2 network interfaces
