We currently have a Gatedefender Integra as our UTM.  Our service contract is coming for renewal and I would like to replace it with a new UTM.  I am looking at Sonicwall TZ 210.  Can anyone tell me if the user has to login (other than his Window 2003 account) to have access to the services offered by the TZ 210?  Before, getting the Gatedender Integra, I had been looking into UTMs and some required the user to not only log in to their windows account, but also into a UTM account.  

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

no, users do not. the sonicwall initially applies its security services based on zones. you can, however, customize different types of content filters, for instance. then, have users login to the sonicwall to get their content filter applied.  but, by default, they do not have to login.

Do you know if it can run as a router or does it have to run in transparent mode?

i'm not sure what your question means. you don't have to run it in transparent mode. it is a firewall and will route traffic regardless. the key here is what's happening with the traffic as it passes LAN <> WAN. since it is a firewall, it will NAT that traffic. you can't turn that off...well, you could, in a way, but you'd be using it outside of the scope the hardware was meant to be used.

make sense. am i understanding correctly?
