Raptor consideres it a security risk to allow anyone else than
administrator to login on a machine running as a firewall. I tend to
agree with them on this.
This is also the reason why you _must_ not install it on a machine
running as a PDC or BDC. All other users get removed.
Raptors philosophy seems to be that if the installation _allowed_ you to
reduce the security it wouldn't be a firewall product.

Of course, it's a firewall. :-)
Seriously, Raptor Eagle installs in a "deny everything" mode, and forces
you to _work_ on it in order to allow anything. Which IMO is what a
firewall should do. If you want it to act as a transparent proxy you can
(using the "general service proxy" I believe), but in that case: why
have you bought a firewall?
