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

But if my experience with Internet-enabled software vendors
is anywhere near common, nobody's enablign the proxies.

Some are turned on by default, and some common features (like content
filtering) require the proxies in order to work.

But there are plenty of guides and knowledge base articles that
recommend disabling them to fix problems or boost performance. And
that's the core of the old stateful vs proxy debate from 10 years ago.
Now you can have the debate with yourself over your one firewall
platform. :-)
