Astaro Security Gateway Free Home Edition

Haven't tried this myself yet, but it looks promising, and the free home version covers 10 machines, which is more than enough for most :o)

What Is It?

The Astaro Security Gateway Home Edition is a free license for full network protection (Network, Web and Mail Security) without any runtime restrictions. In contrast to a commercial license however, it is limited to 10 Users.

The term “users” in the sense of ASG software licensing refers to workstations, clients, servers and other devices which have an IP address and are protected by the Astaro Gateway. No differentiation is made whether the “user” is communicating with the Internet or with a device in another LAN segment. DNS or DHCP gateway queries are also counted, as is the use of proxies.
