Verizon FiOS has long provided a standard DHCP-enabled RJ45 female connector as their service end-point in the basement of our house. The first thing that I have connected to the FiOS endpoint is the ETH1 ethernet port of a old Pentium-4 tower happily and adequately running the Zentyal 3.5 open-source Small Office Server with 2GB of RAM. The other NIC of this server, ETH0, is connected to the rest of my home LAN (which I will document in a future note for my own sanity while debugging network problems). Zentyal 3.5 integrates Squid running in Transparent Proxy mode with Dansguardian content filter and Ad-Zapper ad blocker, ClamAV anti-virus, Suricata intrusion detection system (IDS) / intrusion prevention system (IPS) and more goodies. Along with the built in firewall, this out-of-the-box configuration immediately filters out most of the unwanted and harmful stuff with little configuration needed, thanks to Zentyal 3.5's awesome browser-based UI and beautiful design and implementation.
