The Untangle Server and 13 of the applications that run on it are open source and free under the GNU General Public License v2 (GPLv2). Untangle’s platform provides the GUI, logging, reporting and “virtual-pipelining” technology to make all of the apps run together smoothly. Signatures updates and software upgrades, which install automatically, are also included.
These are designed for networks with advanced needs. Paid Apps include live support, advanced management features and applications for additional security, productivity and remote access.
Untangle Apps are also available in packages that are tailored to particular customers. We have combined select free and paid apps with the Untangle Gateway, to provide the most complete, yet cost-effective offerings for our customers.
Untangle runs on standard hardware as a bare-metal install, or on Windows XP or Vista, or in VMware.
Untangle runs on generic Intel/AMD hardware. A Pentium III processor, 2 NICs and 512MB of RAM is the min spec for smaller networks and multi-core chips with extra RAM really make Untangle sing for larger networks. More specific sizing guidance and links to the community hardware compatibility list can be found on the Hardware Requirements wiki.
