    Thanks guys. Since I already have the second box I am going to go that route. If I run into issues of some sort I will gladly look into the policy manager. I just don't have the budget to spend anymore allocated dollars on IT than I have to. Thanks again.

    Thanks guys.
    I have a customer that does this. Their main Untangle has a premium sub, the secondary unit is just lite. The lite box's external interface is connected to a 100mbit dedicated fiber line that connects to the main office. The lite has no NAT policies, no DNS, just DHCP and static routes, and a few QoS rules. The far side of the lite box's external interfaces is eth3 on the main Untangle. The main untangle does all of the NAT work for the network.

    I could have used something lighter over there, but I wanted a consistent router interface to manage everything for that client. That said, I'm going to have to switch to something else because we've just uncovered the need for dynamic routing... I need multicasts to work across all sites.
