Our customers

At Yawarra, we work hard to make our customers happy.

But don’t just take our word for it.

Here’s what some of our customers have said about their experience with us.

I've been using a pfSense firewall for years and recently required an alternative solution to running a computer 24hrs a day to both electricity, space & reliability requirements.

I was a little unsure at first as the price is quite expensive but after receiving the ALIX 2-3 it was very evident why.

Whilst the pictures you have on the website are very good you cannot hold or "feel" the quality of a photo.

These units are exceptionally built and look great.

As an IT Solutions provider now I have seen the quality and professional service provided by Yawarra I will be recommending all new & existing clients install Yawarra (pfSense) firewalls.

Brian Whiting Sydney NSW April 13, 2014

The only thing that stopped me buying this product sooner was not knowing they existed, but I'm really glad to have found a great product that I can source locally.

I really like the choice of coloured cases, and also that they're open source, with no ongoing costs and have local support.

I recommend the ALIX 2-3 because the reliability and customisation for the price is excellent.

Ben Gray Tech 247 July 26, 2016

A friend recommended Yawarra to me after we were talking about a new firewall requirement of mine.

I purchased the ALIX 2-3 with wireless AP to secure my SOHO network from malware and other nasties that my teenage children encounter on a daily basis.

Initial setup has been a breeze, although not complete, my initial impression of these fine devices is fantastic.

Well done Yawarra on your wonderful customer service.

Will certainly purchase from Yawarra again!

I plugged my ALIX 2-3 into a lappy with a cross-over cable and spent 5 minutes reconfiguring it to use a static IP in our DMZ.

I shut it down, put it in place of the DSL modem it was replacing and plugged it into the NBN.

Powered it on and the house was reconnected with the world, only faster.

Cameron Paine Brunswick VIC April 13, 2014

I didn't know that the ALIX 2-3 was an option until a bit of research, but it's a great product - quiet and well-built with a low power draw.

And I really like the set-and-forget reliability.

We already have 3 WRAP 1-2 [ALIX 2-3] firewalls, which we're very happy with - they've replaced 3 Cisco routers at a fraction of the cost, with more capability and no ongoing licensing costs.

Thank you for providing an excellent product and great service.

Very cool little box, which I'm using to provide DNS, DHCP, NTP, VPN, and firewall for my small office network.

Next project is convincing it to speak IPv6.

It fits just nicely under my Apple Airport.

The best thing is that it is silent! (My daughters like it because it's pink.)

Edward Irvine Waramanga ACT April 13, 2014

I am building a Beowulf server and needed fast ethernet connection speeds and multiple (4) ethernet ports.

Very few companies I looked at had this product at a reasonable price, but I was happy to purchase from you. A very friendly company that makes you feel like a hero!

With a bit of reading and watching YouTube videos, it was a breeze to install, and it works fine.

I really like that it can do 900 bits per second instead of the usual 100 bits per second that other network cards have, as well as the fact that it has 4 ethernet ports.

The LAN1841 is great for great for building home and business networks especially Beowulf's.

We have recently got two new internet connections from Vertel (microwave) - one 20MB link and a dedicated 2MB VoIP link.

The two new boxes running pfSense are great - we have configured our VPN (with radius auth) and also set up a syslog server using syslog-ng to capture all the logs (mainly to prolong the life of the CF cards running the system.)

I have used Yawarra boxes at home for several years and it is great to see them in operation at my work place now - we are a 40 people web development workshop.

Yawarra were very helpful in responding to all of my questions about the ALIX 3 series single board computers and also put together my system very quickly (same day build and pickup!).

There are not many affordable options when it comes to single board computers in Australia and even harder to find anyone selling them online.

Yawarra offer single board computers to suit your budget along with an excellent online store that allows you to customise your system backed with great customer service (big thanks to Paul).

Paul has been extremely helpful with my order and has come up with a solution for internal failover that was required for me to purchase a firewall system from Yawarra.

After sales support has thus far also been excellent and I would be happy to recommend Yawarra as a vendor to any of the organisations I deal with.

Tim Robertson Bundaberg, QLD August 6, 2015

Your recommendation of Rident with CARP using a net6501 to build a redundant firewall solution worked perfectly and wasn't difficult to set up.

Your excellent customer service really stood out for us - from our first point of contact through to receiving the order.

We also appreciated your follow through telephone call advising us that the delivery may be a day or two later than planned.

It is those qualities that we look for in our suppliers - people we can depend on.

We have your business card, and I have already added Yawarra to our contacts list.

Keep up the good work.

I just received a fit-PC2 PC from Yawarra and would just like to say how impressed I was with the product, packaging and the way you presented the contents.

It is nice to see a company take ownership and provide what seems to be a more personalised service for an imported product.

I work for a private hospital and we are setting up information displays for our nursing staff to view live patient data.

If this first kiosk is a success I will likely be back to the Yawarra website to purchase 5+ more units in the near future.

Thanks again.

I've made many purchases with Yawarra over the years, but I still get a smile on my face when a white Yawarra box turns up the very next day after I order.

Every time! I must say, the service is excellent.

The first device I purchased - a net5501 - all those years ago is still going strong.

If you want speedy service and rock solid devices don't hesitate to place an order, you won't be disappointed!

The team at Yawarra were extremely prompt in contacting me directly after I placed my order

They were happy to talk me through various options I could take as well as what other customers had experienced.

As for the packaging of the order: it was extremely professional and the care taken to package everything is something I only get with the likes of Apple!

So, thanks a lot to everyone from Yawarra, you definitely made my day!

Rhys Terranora NSW April 13, 2014

Again, (3rd) time purchaser your service is exemplary.

I will not be purchasing elsewhere.

Products are brilliant, postage is extremely fast.

The only reason I didn't select ""No, it arrived sooner"" is the fact the last two times I have also selected that option.

But it's clear you guys / gals are on the ball all the time.

It is a pleasure to purchase from a vendor that specialises in and has expertise related to Linux.

The customer service was excellent, and the entire process was efficient and well managed.

Jason White Burwood East VIC April 13, 2014

As always, very quick to get a reliable and power efficient little machine into my hands.

My ALIX 3 is being used as a second Music-on-Hold server within 2 days of ordering.

Shane Pearson Sydney NSW April 13, 2014

Yawarra has always been right at the very top of our suppliers as far as service, and deliverability is concerned.

Pricing, timeframes, support, all of it 10/10.

Really just wanted to say how impressed I am with both your service and the product - Yawarra far outclass other options and at a more competitive price.

You're number 1 on my 'recommend to others' list that's for sure!
