Rich (and everyone else); I'm sorry this has caused a problem.
I knew that my paper had been archived in
and was originally distributed via firewalls mailing list (and
I thought archived there, but maybe it is gone).

Please inform anyone that is interested that the paper
can be retrieved from my host via anonymous ftp, the
file is in ~/pub/misc/security.txt.Z.  I have also been
responding to numerous requests via email and I have no
problem continuing to do so.  My email address is:

 jhu .

To ftp, ftp to

Also, due to a large amount of encouragement from several
people, I am in the process now of updating and editing
my paper and will release a new version probably within
July.  I will also include references to some more recent
tools (but of course I'm not making an attempt to write
a book report on every possible firewall solution, or I
would never be able to stop writing it--or maybe I should
go into business and make this an annual production ;) ;).

Again, I apologize if the "source" information I gave
was erroneous, I thought I was following a good practice.

At the time I did the original paper, TIS had a PEM product which I
was told by someone at TIS that it was not free (although I did
mention it in my paper).... sorry, can't cover everything, but I
will gladly accept recommendations (as I did from Herve Schauer
on his firewall product).
