Hi,

Which version of Untangle do you have? : The Untangle Gateway Platform and 12 of the applications that run on it are open source and free to use under the GNU General Public License v2 (GPL). This includes updates to signatures, block lists, and category lists, as well as upgrades to the applications themselves. The applications run on the Untangle Gateway Platform, which is also open source and free under the GPL.

The Professional package is a popular, commercial add-on to the Untangle Gateway Platform that delivers live support, advanced management capabilities, and additional access options. It addresses a number of business needs including enforcing multiple web usage policies, integrating with an Active Directory implementation, providing "anytime anywhere" access to the intranet, and having the peace of mind that expert help is only a phone call away.

So which of the 12 free applications are not working for you? Can you please elaborate further your query?

Refering to your queries:

1-The number of users depends on the machine which are using. Under a normal server I guess 100 nodes can easily be managed. For accurate no. of users you can always post on untangle forums.

2- Yes atleast CLAM-AV can easily be upgraded.Spamassassin can be upgraded.

3-Yes Untangle is safe.

4-You can always use SSH2 to access Untangle from Windows using any SSH client. The professional edition has a web based remote accessing mechanism though. Also one can purchase PC Remote in Professional edition.
