    Look like IPCop – is it fork of it or it comes from IPCop?

    Thank you so much, But I have a question, Can I use it as a modem and a router in the same time,Can I plug the ISP cable (RJ11) directly into The IPFire pc (I have an old pc that have two lan network cards and one wlan network card) and configure The PPPoE and than setup a dhcp to provide IP to the clients (lan & wlan), If I can, how can I convert the RJ11 cable to plug it into the RJ45 port.

      Yes, It will destroy all your datas. However, you can install ipfire alongside Ubuntu (Dual boot).

        Benny, IPFIre is an OS. It will delete all your hdd datas. Try dual boot(Ubuntu+IPFire) or use a dedicated system. You can’t install it on Ubuntu.

        I do not know the reason you want to install IPFire together with other distros. Do not not any impact on perfomance but be carefull with installation and partition HDD. But…. if you want only test – why do not use virtualization? VirtualBox, qemu, vmware ….?
        It it safe and good way to test.

        Benny, I don’t know why do you want to use triple OS? It will definitely impact the system performance. As pavol suggested in the below comment, if you want to test IPFire, use any virtualization tools like KVM, Virtualbox or Vmware. I strongly suggest you to use a dedicated system for IPFire in production environment.

    ipfire is extremely stable, and one of the kind in some situations.
    I’m using ipfire with a crapberry pi and is working pretty well.
    One ethernet ( built in ) and two wireless usb sticks ( with external powered usb hub).
    The purpose is a wireless signal extender for my large house ( with all the firewall and caching goods ).
    All other attempts to re-purpose the crapberry ( raspian, tazberry ) have fallen into silent death.
    ipfire works rock solid without freezes and forced reboots.

    SK (or anyone else). Can you comment on IPFire vs pfSense? I am on pfSense for the last few years but would like to know of any major limitations of moving to IPFire.
