Daniel Christle reviews the latest version of XSentry Filewall
from Trustix, and he likes what he sees.

"XSentry 1.5 is the latest offering from Trustix in the firewall
series. It comes in two licenses: 2 zone and 4 zone licenses.
Zones, referring to the area covered. The 4 zone license being
aimed at companies that run a series of servers that perform
specific tasks such as web, mail, or FTP. The two zone license is
aimed at smaller companies that have multi-purpose servers. There
are also some feature differences between the two that need to be
considered as well. The 2 zone license doesn't allow port
forwarding and has only limited Masquerading ability(no rule
setting for outbound traffic)."
"What I liked about XSentry is that you can configure the
firewall from a workstation very easily. There is very little to be
done on the server itself. While other firewall suites have this
functionality, Trustix has made the job very easy and intuitive.
Great for the stressed system administrator."
