I have been running FreeBSD on a cluster of standard
Intel based servers
as an economical and functional alternative to "normal"
routers on the edge of our campus for the past 2.5 years.
Using Zebra/Quagga and ipfw/dummynet we have set up a system
which is both flexible in terms of meeting our external
routing and packet filtering needs.
We are the largest University in Canada, serving some
70,000 students and 11,000 staff and faculty. There
are an estimated 50000 machines which are served
by our external routing cluster.
