My experience with a net4501 running on FreeBSD 5.2.1 with OpenVPN:
- Yes, it can keep up with a firewall at that speed. I have achieved
344KB/sec on my own 3-4 megabit connection.
- No, it cannot keep up with a VPN. OpenVPN maxed out on a net4501 for
me at 130KB/sec. On a net4801 it maxes out at about 310 KB/sec.
These are just my experiences, given to show you a ballpark of what you
might achieve. YMMV!
