Look into pfsense. It's rock solid and bad based, and can be purchased as an appliance. (both real and vm)

Subject: which firewall product?

Hi folks,

I'm trying to identify a firewall appliance for one of my customers.
The wrinkle is: it has to be able to inspect packets inside an IPIP
tunnel and accept/reject based on IP address, TCP port number and
standard things like that. On the packet carried *inside* the IPIP
tunnel packet.

>From what I can tell, the Cisco ASA can't do this.

Linux iptables can (with the u32 match module) but the customer wants
an appliance, not a server.

What appliances do you know of that can do this? Is there a different
Cisco box? A Juniper firewall? Anything else?

Thanks in advance,
Bill Herrin
