Re: BSD Success Stories
More success stories,
We were having a terrible time with spam at our school system. So,
I told my boss we could build a spam filter based on OpenBSD, and at the
same time secure our email server. It has been a great hit. It filters
over 6000 emails a day and provides clean mail to our teachers.
Everyone is happy and using their mail again.
We were having problems accessing an app that connected back to a
program called Linwood Holton Governors School. It is a great program
for our students. Basically they get college credit for high school
classes. But the app did not like to run behind NAT. Our ISA server
would not hold connection. We brought in several consultants who knew
ISA. They couldn't make it work either. I told my boss I could have it
up the next morning with an OpenBSD server running pf. That was six
months ago and they have not had any downtime.
We also use an OpenBSD based Snort box.
