Thanks Nico, this is quite useful.  Too bad they don't have a nice
gateway server in that list.  I need to configure a server for a
customer with the following:

1. Proxy server (e.g. Squid) with internet usage logging and access
control (password to access the internet)
2. Automatic routing between ADSL and 3G backup
3. Dynamic DNS for site (e.g. no-ip/dynDNS) so site is always accessible
when routing changes (ADSL/3G/iBurst/etc)
4. OpenVPN for remote access

It should not have anything else, e.g.
1. no DNS service/domain controller
2. no Samba print/file server

This should purely be a gateway

Anybody aware of existing projects like this?
