I have a few more questions on FW-1 on NT, if you have time to respond:
Any folks running into problems with using PCI NIC's with fw-1 3.0a and
NT 4.0? A support FAQ I was reading (somewhat out of date now) indicated
that this was a problem (possibly fw-1 2.1c with NT 4.0).
>From looking at the menu's within the user interface (rule base with
version 2.1c), how do you determine what is the external NIC? Within
"machine properties" and the "general" tab, is the external network the
IP address entered on the "general" tab? You can set up multiple
interfaces, but nowhere is it obvious what your external network is
defined as (i.e., the one facing the Internet). The idea is you have
only one "external" network defined.
If you are just setting up the firewall and do not have DNS running,
where does FW-1 check to verify the firewall server name when you are
logging in to the user interface? Does it simply use the server name
input into admin along with your user and password? Or does it need to
be in lmhosts or hosts?
We're are looking at evaluating 3.0a next week. Right now we have a
group with a 2.1c evaluation trying to load it with some questions.
