three additional notes:
1. PIX uses stateful inspection to verify connection requests
to effectively reduce the chance of a successfull DOS
2. Since the PIX uses the micor-kernel, it can handle *many*
more connection requests than full blown OS firewall's.
> 1. The product is new and is still maturing, upgrades are coming pretty
3. Among these upgrades, as I understand it, are a) more IOS like
command set and b) web based config/management along the lines
of the successful NETSYS tools.
