Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"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."
