    Things are getting a little confusing. ISS claims that its Proventia boxes are also firewallas. Intrushield 2.1 has firewall/layer 4 filtering capabilities now. If the Intrushield box layer 4 acls now then what makes it not be equal to a firewall? What does a firewall do that an IPS doesn't as long as the IPS can do layer-4 access lists? Any info is apprecaited.
