In a couple of weeks I beleive Checkpoint's FW-1 will run on AIX.
There is an optional product called SeOS (Security for Open Systems) that
you can buy with Firewall 1 that hardens the OS - otherwise it does not
harden the OS at all. FW-1 does however restrict any NETWROK services
based on the rules you establish (as does any other Firewall).
Yes, FW-1 does su[[prt FTP connections from any side that you want. Leaving
the policy making up to you.
