As much as I was fighting to find a worthy, Linux-based firewall distro 
for our office that was feature-rich, and still free, I came to conclude 
that the BSD-based "OpnSense" was a fantastic pfSense fork and my best 
option.  We'd used Endian in the past, but it was far too simple for 
some of our VLAN needs, and I had to standardize on something.
