FW: Firewall Project
The "technical" leadership at my wife's work are back-pedalling from
using a Linux firewall between an AS/400 system and remotely-connected
PC's based on the following argument:
> To all Network Administrators:
> Problem: AS/400 can only communicate with active packets to and from the
> client. Any type of passive packet exchange will result in a loss of
> connectivity and invoke a Winsock error.
> Solution: Use an active firewall scheme
This "active" firewall will most likely consist of a windows-based
Can anyone comment on why Linux would be unsuitable for firewall use
in this configuration?
