Do you support the protocols directly, or do you tunnel them through IP (or the
best scenario both)
>From the meeting I had with an NSC rep today, IP (or VinesIP) is about
all that can be supported directly (routing). Bridging is used for
everything else. They did say that this will change, though....
That brings me back to my first question... If this thing is so wonderful,
then how (not why) can you market it for next to nothing??
I understand the why rational of wanting to corner the firewall market by
making inexpensive firewalls, but this is a COMMON QUESTION that people come to
I just want to know what enables you to price this so low...
Throughput. If you use the encryption and compression and other nifty
stuff, the ~3K package can only handle 128K average throughput. You
need the ~11K option (The Security Router) to handle all this at T1
speeds. I don't know how much faster you can go....
We are looking at using NSC's stuff, too. I'd be curious to hear
any other info/responses you get....
