A good value
Watchguard makes firewalls, and has done a good job of combining a switch, firewall and web filter (an extra cost option). I bought it primarily for the web filter, which you buy separately. The WebBlocker allows filtering by category and is dynamically updated (every web request results in a query to the watchguard web site to verify if the web site is ok). Setup is a bit cumbersome as you have to cut and paste license keys from the watchguard web site. The firewall gives a lot of granularity on both incoming and outgoing traffic. Glitches: - if it has a problem with getting to the watchguard site, web access is very slow until you reset the firebox.
