Greetings,

in the recent Network Computing IDS review, the version of NFR Greg
received was apparently a beta version as he mentioned in the
article. He also said that the last version they got impressed him.

Has anyone else any comments on the latest rev of NFR? Perhaps is
running it for a bit and can share some experience?

Regards,
Frank
