Hello,

	I agree, a Firewall should not be running any non-needed services, that
is why you have a DMZ or SSN. To place your mail, DNS and other servers
that require Internet access.

I believe two of the most secure firewalls are Cisco Pix and the
BorderWare Firewall. Cisco does not offer any services and Borderware
offers a few for small business and are very restrictive.

I suggest you get your money back -- I would rather take a linux box
with lids (Linux Intrusion Detection System [ www.lids.org ]) then the
Sidewinder.

Michael.
