as long as the kernel's mbuf of the linux machine can handle the load of the
network, but you can increase the mbuf value by recompiling the linux
kernel.
The high usage of mbuf the more resource it consumes.

I don't believe the issue is the number of clients on a lan, but the kind
of network it will serve. Linux can do quite well on 10/100 switched
networks, although the latency is not as good as the high end dedicated
routers which approach wire speed.

Linux based WAN routers (PCs equipped with v.35 router cards and the like)
have the additional benefit of not only being an IP router, but can also
concurrently be your firewall, VPN server, dialup RAS, and traffic shaper
as well.

The combination of Linux advanced IP routing included in the kernel and
the Zebra implementation of BGP4, BGP4+, OSPFv2, OSPFv3, RIPv1, RIPv2, and
RIPng makes it a low cost, high performance alternative to Ciscos and the
like.

Hi Jojo,

I would recommend that you try using the PC router OS by Mikrotik. =
http://www.mikrotik.com. It is basically for free, but without =
technical support. Although there is a mailing list where you can ask a =
few questions though.

I have one running as a backbone / firewall for our network. It's on a =
celeron 633 box with 5 ethernet cards. This machine is happily routing =
2 blocks of /24 IP address over two separate uplink providers as well =
as the firewall for our network for the past 1 1/2 year. =20


Regards,

Jaime

Hi Jojo:

your pc base router is at par with your Cisco Routers!!! you can even have
lots of physical memories in unlike your 1700 cisco routers.
