Re: [fw-wiz] Firewalls that generate new packets..

What part of this makes you wonder?

What IOS, PIX, etc. have in common is The Brand.

One sales force. One marketing force. One field engineering/technical support force. The force is strong in them. Even if Cisco products are enormously different under the hood, this is a compelling feature for Cisco, as it had been for IBM and DEC in the past.

And organizations like the familiarity of the Pix (ASA) because everything else they have are Cisco devices.

Which always made me wonder: Pix have almost nothing common with IOS
routers except Cisco label on it. For ASA, things chaged a bit, but the
"firewall" part of the device is still the same.
