Re: [P-box] (fwd) Tor Hardware Router (Tor in a box)

Hardware is actually a small part of the overall product for this.  How
would hardware/software support, replacements, upgrades, and an admin
gui be handled?

It'd also be great if these had enough cpu power to be a server
(configurable by the user of course) as well.  I know the soekris crypto
card is decent, but not sure that could be included in the price of the
hardware and still keep it cheap enough.

: The WRAP from PC-Engines.ch was just a "lowcost" example (about 150 Euro).
: The embedded engines from Soekris.Com have much more power and should

: have a look here: http://www.soekris.com/products.htm
: for example the net4826 would be a good thing.
