I am planning to run Zeroshell on an Alix board with plenty of storage because I liked the interface and possibilities of Zeroshell.
However, as I have plenty of disk space, I would like to have opportunities of a more common Linux distribution such as Debian or Ubuntu (or even Voyage Linux)
On these distributions I can use development packages such as gcc, make etc to compile any Linux opensource software.And also on such distributions I can install ready (precompiled) packages with tools like yum, apt-get etc.
Is there a way to reach advantages of Zeroshell on a complete Debian installation ? (or other distributions I mentioned above)
What I would like to have is ready features of Zeroshell together with possibility of compiling and installing other software.
I am quite used to Linux so I can manage to install Debian and required packages for a completely customizable environment.
However, I would like to have a web interface for managing features of a gateway/router such as dns, firewall and nat rules, qos, vpn etc.
