LASAT Masquerade PRO

The LASAT Masquerade 2 and later Masquerade PRO was created by LASAT Networks, as part of a product line of self-contained SOHO all-in-one servers (firewall/NAT/router, mail server etc.)

Unfortunately the company went bust, so very few of these devices were ever shipped, but they still fulfill their original purpose very well.

The Debian project still uses two Masquerade PRO as MIPS autobuilders.
