Then Padgett said:
Unfortunately, what you want does not exist. Security, particularly Internet
Insecurity, is different from RAC-F administration.
While many firewalls are drawn from Unix backgrounds (though
more precisely they use UNIX-like interfaces, rarely are they built on top
of plain-jane UNIX), this is because most people who have the necessary
background in the TCP/IP protocols and addressing used on the Internet
to be able to set up a good firewall come from Unix backgrounds and are
most familiar with that syntax.
Now I'm saying:
You should have a look at FireWall/Plus. This product is a DOS-Based
*WAIT*...before you dismiss it by saying "How good can it be if it's DOS"
you should know that it is much much more.
FireWall/Plus is a "Stateful" packet filtering firewall. It is as robust as
most UNIX based firewalls...in all cases easier to setup and manage...less
costly to purchase and maintain...Filters and reports on frame level,
transport level, application level, node level and even down to the byte
level with no UNIX scripting by simply utilizing the most intuitive
GUI...Blah Blah Blah
Sorry for the sales pitch...but have a look at it on our home page and you
can even down-load a copy and try from there as well.
