What OS to choose for nat+routing+shaper? In addition, where can I read about configuring such servers? Will be about 1.5 thousand users. Yet look towards mikrotik. Also advised to use freebsd, but the experience of high-loaded configuration such yet was not.
upd: please advise quality articles on setting up servers of this magnitude.

FreeBSD+ipfw+kernel_nat?
Sysctl is not so difficult to configure with sysctl -d.
Articles the sea, especially as root to configure bzdak.

It was a piece of ordinary office there was a gateway on an old Red Hat ine. About 300 users, mail, squid+rejik, and much more. VPN to three points (branches). Most of the time a piece of iron was loaded on 2-5%.
The main thing is to take a normal iron, but Linux vs FreeBSD does not matter you will see that is more like it.

Done, as I said, elementarno.
Suggest to use Intel network card as broadcom was the problem.

If you plan to use it the "normal" glands (a normal PC, not a special piece of metal). The choice is obvious — FreeBSD. Iron won't be a problem (if you don't get in the exotics) and articles in the sea, including Russian.

Why the most popular answer — FreeBSD? Worse than Linux? and NAT and shaping it too.
