Firewall list recommendations (config conversion options)

The firewall mailing lists tend to be pretty dead now a days.

Your best bet is probably writing a python script to convert the
rules/objects over. You may have some luck asking the vendors professional
services group to do it. Depending on the size of the order perhaps you can
toss it in or just add the hours to the PO. Most PS groups have scripts
already written to convert from other vendors configs to their platform.

Good luck,
