RE: Firewall opinions wanted please

	Depends on many aspects; performance, management, and logging
features. I personally recommend Checkpoint FW-1 Express for a smaller
site if you want easy configuration and a great logging interface;
though the pricing may not be what you are looking for.  Cisco PIX is
also great but the management and logging aspects in my opinion are not
up to par with Checkpoint on the lower price end (i.e. Without
investment in other management tools).  It goes back to what you and
anyone supporting the platform will be comfortable with.

Subject: Firewall opinions wanted please

 I am looking for a good but reasonably priced firewall for a 40 or so
 site. Some people swear by Pix, others swear at it a lot. Also I have
good things about Netscreen. Or any others you would recommend for
servers on a busy network. Don't really need anything with VPN just the
standard http, ftp, ssh, https, type traffic up to 100mb throughput.
 From what I have heard a proxy firewall would be best? 


 Thanks in advance!!
