Subject: [Dshield] Preferred firewall

| As a result of the current threats on the internet, I have aquired an extra
| budget for buying a decent firewall for our company.
| Which model do I choose?
| The following features should be there:
|   Remote administration (web/telnet)
|   Mac address checking on all rules and on remote admin access.
|   Redirection of incoming/outgoing port numbers
|   VPN (at least 4-5 channels)
|   DMZ zone
|   Free access to configuration (I do not want to pay $$ for every change I
| want to make...)
|   Well known brand/model
| I would also like to have these features:
|   No restart of firewall upon changes (that sucks when making changes during
| working hours...)
|   Nice (and fast) administration GUI.
| To add some facts of our line of work - we are software developmers, and
| sometimes we have a need to temporary opening and closing ports due to
| software testing.
| I know, that's a big hole in security, but it's the way we want to do it.
| A really nice thing would be if we were able to run a selected number of
| developer PS's on a shielded subnet, like a second DMZ controlled and routed
| by the firewall.
| My budget is limited to about $3000.
| Feel free to respond if you have any good recommendation.
| Btw. our nearest neighbour is a Cisco dealer... ;-)
