My list of books would include the following:
"tcp/ip network adminstration" by Craig Hunt, an O'Reilly book
"tcp/ip illustrated Vol 1" by Stevens an Addison & Wesley book
"Practical Unix Security" by Garfinkel/Spafford an O'Reilly book
"Firewalls and Internet Security" by Cheswick/Bellovin an Addison & Wesley book
As for Firewall products I would role your own, for now.
