I found this
Since I recently reviewed ClarkConnect-another free Open Source firewall-I
thought I'd offer a few points of comparison. The biggest difference between
the two is that Smoothwall is designed to be a dedicated firewall only, while
ClarkConnect can be a firewall, a server, or both. On the other hand, both
distros are alike in that they are designed to be administered from a web
based configuration utility.
But I think Smoothwall's web interface is a little better laid out and easier
to navigate than ClarkConnect's. And I found Smoothwall's online help system
to be more helpful and complete than Clarkconnect's method of putting general
descriptions alongside configuration options. In the end, both distros are
reliable and will get the job done, while at the same time being easy for
almost anyone to get up and running.
