[Openswan Users] hardware considerations?

Hi All,

Does anyone have strong opinions regarding hardware? I am currently running
FreeS/WAN on a very old odd-ball box with around 20 site-to-site (lan-2-lan)
tunnels. We will not be going over 50 tunnels for the foreseeable future.
Very soon we will be upgrading to a 5 Mbps dedicated Internet link. The new
Openswan box will not be providing any firewall services... strictly VPN
gateway. We plan on going with SuSE.

    * CPUs (more cores versus faster cores? x86 versus x86_64?)
    * NICs (onboard versus card? brands?)
    * Other considerations?

Thanks in advance!
