Secure bootable FreeBSD CD @

A very tight FreeBSD 9.2 ISO image containing a stripped down kernel with nothing but network card drivers in it, a minimum set of networking tools (ipfw, natd, route, ifconfig, netstat etc.) and a very good http(s) balancer Pound preinstalled. Useful for firewalls, gateways and other static diskless high security servers.

Download ISO image (10M), modify configuration files to taste, burn and boot.

Note: some ISO editors move or rearrange files upon save and thus break the bootable CD. If the CD fails to boot after you have edited the image please switch to a different ISO editor.
