    Firewall load balancing recommendation needed

    Can any one recommend a firewall which supports load balancing? We have a number of servers with in our rack which are currently hosted behind one firewall box but I would like to have the firewall load spread across multiple boxes.

    Ideally this needs to be an open source solution. We have Looked at IPCOP, pfSense, m0n0wall but these dont seem to support the sort of load balancing we require.

    Many Thanks

    If you are doing a software/open source solution why not 2 seperate scripts/programs?

    Run whatever you want for a firewall then ultramonkey/linux-ha for the load balancing part.

    You could easily use LVS to load balance with just a few commands. You could then get even more fancy with keepalived etc
