Security on a Shoestring Budget

The last link in the above article goes somewhere where Randy might feel right at home:

That's a pretty good listing, although some of the ones listed are not technically network security tools.  It did bring up a question I've wondered about.

Don - Have you ever tried running a BSD server?  I got curious about this when I heard Steve Gibson on his podcast bring up again that he used BSD for his servers.  He commented on liking the stability and security of BSD.

I've only loaded a version of BSD up and played around with the desktop some.

I have.

It's a good OS and I like it just fine but the bottom line is that most of my background is Microsoft and having to learn a whole new operating system, especially at the command line, is just too much for my feeble brain to get around. I was constantly having to refer to other sources to figure out how to do something and it took too much time for my impatient tastes.

That's not to say that I know everything there is to know about Windows server but I can find most things or at least know where to look.

Know what you mean.  I go through spurts of wanting to dig into something, but most of the time I just want it to work.
