thanks for your response.
It was just a quick idea, to see some reactions.
of course freebsd is not a must.

m0n0wall (http://m0n0.ch/wall/) was just an example, because the php /
xml config implementation
is ihmo a good way to solve the configuration etc. of such an "appliance".

perhaps we should as the ppl. at pcengines.ch - they developed this box :-)
another solution would be the net4801 from soekris engineering. (http://www.soekris.com/)

dont get me wrong.. my initial posting was just to check if there is
a general interest in a "hardware based" solution.

would be a good thing to know, what the devs think about it :-)
