I work for a system integrator who resells Sun hw/sw, and we've done a
bunch of FW-1 configs. My suggestions?
1. Use 2.5.1. It's more stable and performs a bit better.
2. Not that I know of, at least for version 2.1.
3. I would remove *all* services from the firewall itself unless you
*really* need them. You can administer the firewall remotely using the
FireWall-1 remote GUI, which uses an encrypted tunnel to communicate with
4. I'd use OpenLook, just because it's smaller than CDE and puts a little
less load on the machine. It really doesn't matter very much.
