Jamie,

You've upgraded to the big leagues with the FWSM .. congratulations!

VMS is worthless for logs, IMHO. Just set the FWSM to do level 7 
(logging trap debugging) and get a UNIX box running syslog-ng to deal 
with the info it generates.

No "super-spiffy" GUI needed ;)

The logging detail from 'level 7' on a Cisco is actually more 
informative than anything you'll get from Checkpoint (not to mention the 
ease of looking at it with standard tools) .. for example, debug mode 
will give you every URL visited by every IP.

Cheers,
