Low cost implementations of useful tools for spam/virus mitigation and
network monitoring, plus a network gateway.

Maia Mailguard (including postfix, mysql, clamav, spamassassin), ntop,
netdisco, mrtg, nagios and a few others. Built a gateway/router with a
whitebox, FreeBSD and 3 dual-port NICS to segregate our production
network from our test/dev networks. Built a router with a Sangoma card
and a white box for our DS3 and T1 connections.
