"NetMAX FireWall from Cybernet Systems is a smooth-running, easily configurable firewall, if you can get past its annoying setup and installation."

"I found NetMAX FireWall particularly interesting because of its secure Web-based configuration. If it lived up to its claims, I would no longer need to do everything via a console for my managed-services customers. The machine I used for this review would typically be used for a firewall."

"The initial installation was a little frustrating. The software does not offer a network-based install, so I had to find a CD-ROM drive to put into the machine. That slowed my installation by only 10 minutes, but without a network-based install, it is difficult to efficiently install the product on multiple machines."

"After installing the CD-ROM drive and changing the bios to boot from the CDROM, I put in the CD and waited for the magic."
