Hi all,

Does anyone have experience with the firewalls below?

1) One 3Com 6200 security switch with checkpoint FW-1


2) Two Windows 2003 servers with Symantec Enterprise Firewall 8.0 and load
balancing enabled?

We are in the process of planning for the upgrade of our firewall and we
need to decide which one of the above we should implement.  The decision
factors are reliablity, scalability and throughput.

Can you please share your experience with either of the firewall technogies.
Any comments or feedback would be greatly appreciated.
