EBox like a gateway - firewall - traffic shaping, etc...
 
I like ebox but for do a gateway i think that it have a huge memory footprint, and in other hand you cannt install it without "x" and "firefox", and a lot of more software, if you choose gateway ( or just "network" in advance mode) you get x, firefox, users, etc... and for a gateway-firewall nobody needs all this things, and like i say before it consume a lot of memory in packages that you donnt will to use. If i am wrong and anybody knows how to install ebox just like a gateway, please let me know.

thks, and sorry about my english.
bye

If you download the eBox iso image, there's no desktop.
But for a firewall, you can also try IPCop: http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/ipcop/wiki

Yes falko, the ebox iso 1.4.2 install "x" and "firefox" by default, and doesnt care if you only select gateway, also a lot of packages that you dont use in a gateway server.
Respect to ipcop, this distro is dead, instead of ipcop there is a fork called ipfire, anyway ipcop/ipfire have not support for multiwan ( i need multiwan and other features that only have ebox).
So, the question is, there is a way to install ebox without all these unneeded packages?
thks and sorry about my english.

I can't tell, but maybe you can uninstall the desktop or configure the system to not start the desktop.
