This document has been written by the Endian Team, building on the previous versions (5.1, 5.0, 3.0.5), and features improved content and a completely reworked layout, which resembles the new GUI of the 6.0 product line.
Version 2.4 was written by (in alphabetical order) Andreas Ender, Diego Gagliardo, Luca Giovenzana,. Christian Graffer, Raphael Lechner, Chris Mair, Raphael Vallazza, and Peter Warasin. Some parts of the 2.4 documentation were based on the IPCop Administrative Guide by Chris Clancey, Harry Goldschmitt, John Kastner, Eric Oberlander, Peter Walker and on the IPCop Advanced Proxy Administrative Guide by Marco Sondermann.
