I need your opinion about using SparcLinux/OS to build a secure
bastion host on a DMZ(demilitarize zone) into a cooporate firewall.
We bought Blackhole 3.0 from MilkyWay Networks as our firewall
software. We need now to install a DNS server, an FTP server, and
a Web server on our public network. We have the Rembrandt distrib.
from RedHat for SparcLinux with the kernel version 2.0.17. Do
you think SparcLinux is enought stable to be a bastion host
running Apache Web server, wu-ftpd Ftp server and bind-4.9.4
DNS server ? Or, it is more stable and secure with SunOS 4.1.3
or Solaris 2.5 ?
Anyone who got bad stability experience with SparcLinux, please
let me know...
Thanks for any help.
