"I'm willing to substitute some routers and firewalls in my environment for some smaller machines, which, in the best case, should have support for flash memoy to accomodate the operating system, maybe an ide controller to handle laptop hd's, support for conventional pc133 dimm memory, boot through the serial port, optional usb, optional mini-pci, at least 2 ethernet ports, a processor which can handle something like 10Mbps under pf/ipf, and, of course, be supported by OpenBSD. Also, it'd be nice if these machines could require at most 20W of power and cost less than $100 (since there are some low-end [closed] routers with a similar configs at $70 in these days). Any hints?"I don't know about meeting that low of a cost point, but I would be interested in similar hardware myself. Has anyone seen anything out there as described?
