I thought WatchGuard is a "black box" ... or red box, as it may be.
I guy I know is eval'ing it -- they sent 2 red PC-like boxes. There is
no console. Configuration is done via a Windows95/NT/Linux
application. You can dump the config to the serial port (connected
to the WatchGuard "console" port) or to a floppy (which you can
stick in the WatchGuard to boot from) ... you can also save to
The front panel has blinky lights (armed/disarmed LEDs, allowed/denied
LEDs for the 3 interfaces, and power on LED).
There is software for the actual firebox for linux ? (linux is in the red
box they send?)
