For example IPCop is sucessful in that it has had 2.5 million downloads for the 1.4 series, however I do not think the project developers are aware just how much the addons with features such as content filtering and client side friendly VPN projects such as OpenVPN popularize the project.

To define how important /popular certain features are over other features, a whole new firewall distro endian has been developed from IPCop. Here is what it states about the features it has on the home page.

Quote
The features include a stateful packet inspection firewall, application-level proxies for variuos protocols (HTTP, POP3, SMTP) with antivirus support, virus and spamfiltering for email traffic (POP and SMTP), content filtering of Web traffic and a "hassle free" VPN solution (based on OpenVPN).

I'd really love to see snort added to the packages.  Squidguard would also be a nice addition.

I've already got plans on a squidGuard package once I've gotten Squid to a stable release.

I don't know if you guys know hamachi (http://www.hamachi.cc) I have a virtual network card for it in my linux box and I love it, I can always "call home" from anywere I am.
Having a virtual Hamachi interface on a pfSense box would be totally great!

This looks interesting, I'll have a look at it. Seems it's for linux though, so it might need some porting.

Hamachi's source is closed, and nobody has reported success running it on BSD systems. A developer stated back in September that demand for a BSD version is high enough that they may look into making one in the future.

I believe the topic in question referred to running Hamachi on a Windows or Linux system that was set up behind the pf firewall - not running the client itself on BSD.

We have pkg_add.

Run (from a shell prompt):

pkg_add -r ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6.0-release/All/kismet-200507.r1a.tbz
rehash

Then kismet will be available from a shell

Generally an extremely bad idea.  Firewalls shouldn't also be used as general purpose servers.  But hey, in the spirit of "allowing one to shoot oneself in the foot" I suppose if someone wrote a package for this it'd be added.
