How would I create a Hardware Firewall. What do I need to do. i don't know if you have to install any software to do this.
I could set this up on my Xeon HP Pro Lient. But have no idea were to start.
EDIT: Would I be correct in thinking I could use my old server for a Hardware Firewall. The ML350 . Do you know if I need to install an OS link Mint then install the likes of IP Cop or pfsence .
I've been reading, and I think the power consumption could be quite big from this old machine but I've looked up the specks in writing online.

Looking at the OS's it doesn't support much in the way of Linux but I'm curious how I would connect it up like my router or if I have to buy something like a network card. What about the telephone cable in to the back of the router, then the Ethernet back out in to the switch.
