I installed to my firewall computer (box) older compaq desktop latest version of IpCop.
Decided to try an IDE CF adapter and CompactFlash card.
Installation went ok and system is running ok.
Just wondering is the current assembly now a bottleneck with all traffic going through the firewall box.
Before the update the system was installed on a plain 4gb IDE disk.
Q1: I know CF is slower than IDE but how much.. or is it really?
Q2: How could I test how has this CF IDE combination affected on the traffic speed ?
