comment Can't get iptables firewall working correctly
are the iptables rejects getting logged (eg to /var/log/messages)? You might need kern.* /var/log/messages in /etc/rsyslog.conf as well as -j LOG --log-prefix "iptables denied: " --log-level 7 or something like that.

+1, thanks, write-endurance is my main concern. I am wondering if I should under-partition the array by, say, 4GB to improve endurance.

Yes I have an RDSUsers group - currently only one user is in it, though there will be a handful more. Thanks for confirming BES Express will work for me, that is the way I'm going to go.

Don't know why I didn't think of BES - would the Express version not suffice?
