What about Gauntlet? Or Juniper? Or the TIS FWTK? Or Borderware?
Or the Livingston IRX 112? Or KarlBrouter? Or the Norman Firewall?
Or Sidewinder? 

And these are only a few of the dozens of commercial firewalls with
features out the wazoo. Read LAN magazine and Network Computing for
product tests and reviews. Hire a security consultant.

I know what you're asking... What does all this stuff have to do with
running a continent-spanning public network? Nothing at all, of course.

So send one of the following two messages to majordomo at

subscribe firewalls
subscribe firewalls-digest

Hey, if you're *REALLY* interested you could send both of them!
