Giancarlo,

        Unfortunately, yes I have both experience and opinion. I started to
play around with ISA 2000 a while ago, and now I run 3 CheckPoint FW-1's.
Nothing beats a CheckPoint, in my book, BUT, Netscreen is a great little
box, and Watchguard is worth the price as well for smaller offices.

        I'd stay away from ISA as a firewall, trust me, it's not something
you want to have to deal with...<shudder>....and I'm a Microsoft fan.

Hi all,

has someone an opinion (good or bad....)concerning ISA Server 2000 installed
as firewall? How many differences are among this software solution from
Microsoft and Check Point Firewall-1, Netscreen 10/100, Watchguard or Cisco
PIX?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
