The Morning Star Express routers have got the finest filtering syntax
I have personally seen, and they have a flexible set of logging options
as well. The manuals I have (version 0.something) didn't do all that
great a job describing the syntax, and I had to piece it together on
my own -- but I understand that the manual description has improved
greatly in the past few months.
Unfortunately, the MSE is a bit of a toy, compared to a Cisco -- not even
a power switch (again, my experience only). But they do seem to be a bargin
for the price: around $2K, if I recall correctly.
I've found them to be most useful to manage SLIP or PPP connections, and in
that capacity they've been the ideal choice.
* I would very much like to hear more about Xyplex, or any other
* router for that matter, that offered a finer granualarity of
* packet level filtering.
* The floor is open.
