This is not in line with your thinking BUT if you're looking to save energy
replace all of your CRT monitors with LCD. The average 17" CRT uses between
300 and 400 watts. The average 17" LCD uses 30 watts.

Other than that I would tell you to look at the Netscreen 5GT from Juniper
Networks but I don't know if they're multi lingual. I understand that the
Symantec products are supposed to be very nice, although I have no personal
experience with these.

Hello List

I have a little problem.
Maybe its off topic but I hope you can help me :)
I have a linux router with a nice firewall. I want to reduce my energy
costs and have the same security level as before.
I have a little network (5PCs) and they are all connected to the
Internet by that router.

There are some hardware firewalls like
"Symantec GatewaySecurity 320"
"Watchguard Firebox X Edge"
"Innominate mGuard"
Has anybody got experiences with those firewall/routers?

The firewall must be "easy" to configure (i have "good" knowledge
about networks) and they have to be secure - undedectable via portscans
or invulnerable against ddos or worm/trojan attacks...
Yes i know that nobody is invulnerable against ddos - only you have a
little mexican with a wirecutter ;)
Off course - at every workstation is kaspersky av installed but i have
a friend who uses a netgear router and he has problems with some
trojans/viruses in fact of using the routers firewall. With my linux
firewall i never had a problem with worms...

Can anybody help me to make a decision?
Price range up to 200EUR
If it's possible a webinterface in german ;)
