FW-1 may be configured to used either Client or Session authentication
for services other than ftp, telnet, rlogin, and http.
With client authentication, you effectively authenticate all users on
a host to be able to use the services you specify, including SQLnet.
With Session authentication, you enable a user on any machine to begin the
authentication process just by starting the client process used to access
the Oracle database. FireWall-1 3.0 supplies a session authentication agent
that I have tried with telnet and finger, and it works well in a very simple
The Session Authentication agent can be found in the AGENTS subdirectory of
the platform directories on the 3.0 CD
