Just to be negative, but isn't Firewall a less than desirable product?  In 
talking to some FTP people in Rochester I got the impression that it was.  
Basically it is marketed for the suckers who want to keep their shops IBM 
blue.  It was considered, by IBM, to be much lower end, feature/performance 
wise, than products by Cisco, and others.  And priced too high for the low 
end market.  I will be honest in that my knowledge about routers is
extremely limited.

Subject:  Proxy







Hi All,

Is it possible to configure an AS/400 as a web proxy? What
softwar/hardware/other is required? Currently we connect to our ISP via
WinNT dialup, but we experience many problems with the MS Proxy. I was
asked wether we could replace NT with AS/400. We are currently at V4R3.
