Not sure how to cite, but...
I don't know how to cite things, I'm not even good at using wikipedia (not sure if I'm doing this right, either)... But at the end, where it says a citation is needed for Zeroshell, I have the page: http://www.zeroshell.net/ And here's the page explaining about the QoS: http://www.zeroshell.net/qos/
Better handled as a category
I'm pretty certain that this page would be better handled as a category. Suggest making it a redirect to the cateogory page. --Joewski 20:56, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
pfsense is FreeBSD based
I humbly suggest that the pfsense link be removed. Tdelporto 00:35, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
XORP might need included
www.xorp.org might need included. It uses BSD license & is free. Also, I think vyatta is based on xorp. vyatta is both community and commercial. www.vyatta.org & www.vyatta.com —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:19, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
why only Linux ?
- Most have some Unix base or are proprietary. I believe that Windows Server versions can also route. Andyoutside (talk) 08:09, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
Kerio Connect (was Winroute) is missing from the list. It is available as a virtual appliance for VMWare. www.kerio.com — Preceding unsigned comment added by BruceJStedman (talk • contribs) 19:40, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

I added NethServer as a Firewall/UTM distributution to the list. No dedicated page for NethServer exists yet. I hope the NethServer community can work on this in the near future. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rob.bosch (talk • contribs) 11:26, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
It would be nice if there'd be more separation in terms of free for personal use, free for commercial use, and so on.
And also, if we'd have a list of which of them have features such as QoS for example, it would be great.
Removal of OPNsense
Mr.hmm you have removed OPNsense from this page several times and given the following reasons:
1. stop inserting OPNsense self-promotion 2. Stop abusing wikipedia 3. OPNsense is non-notable project which is known to abuse Wikipedia
I do not believe any of those to be true, would you please explain in more detail why you believe OPNsense does not have a right to be listed here. Here are some links that would seems to suggest this is a project that does belong on this page: OPNsense website OPNsense Forums OPNsense Github Deciso OPNsense Wikipedia DE OPNsense Distrowatch OPNsense FLOSS Weekly OPNsense Giovino1 (talk) 14:39, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
- Across Wikipedia, if software doesn't have a Wikipedia article, then it typically gets removed from tables. • Sbmeirow • Talk • 13:39, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
