    Hi,

    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.

    Thanks for your comments…

    No, it is not so easy. Zeroshell is an indipendent linux distribution, derived from Linux From Scratch, but with the startup scripts quite customized.

    Ok; in this case what would you recommend to me ?

    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.

    Webmin could be a good solution for you.

    does it have modules for iptables (firewall, nat, qos, traffic shaping) , dns, dyndns, pppoe, vpn (pptp) etc. ?

    well , I installed webmin and some modules:
    dyndns – ok
    pppoe – ok
    pptp client – module ok , but pptp could not be established
    firewall – iptables ok
    nat – not as easy as on a modem

    I will try to build it up. however, I wish there was a clean interface as zeroshell.

    Could you just release zeroshell web interface (and required packets) as an addon to any Linux Distribution ?

    Virtualization might be a good solution for you…
