2: Astaro Security Gateway Essential Firewall Business Edition

Normally the software available for business use cost money and are not available free but Astaro Essential Firewall Edition for Business use is free. Just not free, you can protect unlimited number of IPs with this firewall.
I could not test it because I am not a business man and I do not own any business or business like network. I could ask my blogger friend who is indeed a business man (men? why quit business? same habits there?) to test this business version but it looks like it will disturb him more. The reason is recently he saw some hyenas (and crooks) in his dream and he is very scared. Asking him to help in this matter will disappoint you. I hope to see him in sound condition.
