The Networkmaine Edition Joebox is a 1U rack-mountable appliance build on commodity hardware. It provides four Gigabit Ethernet ports and has been verified for WAN throughput greater than 100 Mbps with a full feature set. The CPU is an Intel Dual-Core Xeon at 2.5GHz with 2GB RAM.
Here are some of the features of the Joebox M-series:
IP routing engine
Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) Firewall for both NAT (Private) and Routed (Public) IP networks
Optional Local DHCP and DNS services with the ability to act as a satellite server for central MSLN servers (this provides a functional DHCP server in the event that WAN connectivity is lost for publicly-address networks)
Local CIPA-compliant HTTP filter with adaptive Real-Time Filter provides content-based filtering in addition to traditional URL-based filtering.
Limited VPN client and server support through PPTP
Local management through web-based control panel for administration
