I have used Mallard before and I currently use GPL 1.0. It's very easy to set up and use. Lets do a quick run-down:

Get an old PC with 2 network cards. (the old P1 166 that I use for 20-30 PC's works great)
download the image from smoothwall's site
check that image with WinMD5 (this is imperative!) http://www.blisstonia.com/software/WinMD5/
burn the image to CD
put the CD in the PC and boot to it
The setup only takes 5 mintues and walks you through everything
when it asks about stuff you dont need (like ISDN or USB modems) just skip that part and it wont be installed
If you get stuck, let me know.

you can do port forwarding to allow external service access.

To enable port forwarding:
goto the Port Forwarding tab on the Services screen,
ehter 21 for source port,
enter the IP address of your internal FTP server,
and enter 21 for the destination port.
Note that FTP isn't the most firewall frendly protocol so be sure to read up at:

Look for FTP. Lots of other good info there too.

See the findings.
Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

Smoothwall doesn't work as a RAS server. You will have to setup a seperate RAS server in the DMZ (orange network) and the open the ports for the services you need to access your green network.
