Hello and thank you for taking the time to answer my question. Your input is greatly valued.

I need to replace a firewall at a clients. They currently have a FireBox x5 Edge however the previous IT company did not provide him w/ any documentation. So instead of wasting more time on trying to reset the unit and b/c it's outdated. I decided to just replace the darn thing. The budget we have is $300.

Current Setup: There are 12 wks & 1 server. ISP is Optimum LightPath. OS on server is 2008 SBS R2. Exchange will be run on site.

If there is any other information i can provide, please let me know.

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

For a small/medium business I'd recommend a either a WatchGuard XTM2 series firewall or a SonicWALL TZ series.  Either solution will cover the needs for an office plus give you a migration path and scalability.  Contact either company and ask for a local resell in your area to give you a demo of the product.

WatchGuard  - http://www.watchguard.com/products/xtm-2/overview.asp
