I've recently completed a project for a customer involving selection of a
screening router. The vendor short list included Livingstion, MorningStar and
Network Systems. All three have feature lists that are up to the task. A
Network Systems model was chosen because of the interface requirements in
this case that the other two couldn't meet. It is also the most expensive.
They do have a lower end line coming out shortly with more contrained
interface options and consequently a lower price tag.
Another option is to look at KarlsBridge. The commercial offering is very
modestly priced and has a good range of interface options. An earlier version
of their software is available (at an excellant price) from their FTP site.
Depending on your interface requirements, any of these could do the job.
hope this helps
