The solution I went with was Astaro and have been very pleased by it.

but the free edition doesn't seem to have a web filter –  rzlines Aug 14 '10 at 22:48
The home license does include a web filter that you can use based on categories or custom urls. If you want web filtering also look into OpenDNS, that and Astaro and you should be set. –  David Remy Aug 15 '10 at 1:36
yep i do currently use OpenDNS but was looking for an independent solution that acts like a router and a webfilter this seems to look like a decent alternative to Untangle, i will audition them both and see what best fits the bill. Thanks for the reply –  rzlines Aug 15 '10 at 5:33

Why not use pfSense?

does it have a web filter like untangle? besides i always felt like it was more complicated to use haven't really tried it though u can correct me if i'm wrong –  rzlines Aug 14 '10 at 22:53

Untangle has a free version, too ... which is opensource, at least they say so.

I am not sure what Untangle does, maybe something like Guarddog would be what you want.

Untangle does quite a bit in the free version but im looking out for a more comprhensive web filter and something that offers more features than untangle –  rzlines Aug 14 '10 at 22:50
