hi

question 1.  can anyone tell me where I can download a 'tmg evaluation' copy so that I can try it  ?

- tmg_enu_management_x86
- tmg-kb2555840-x86-en service pack
- tmg-kb2288910-x86-enu service pack 1

note:  I have downloaded the 'tmg management' but it is not the actual firewall software

question 2.  I have used isa 2006 and remote vpn, so if there is any advice for 'tmg' other than client anti virus software tmg provides then please let me know  ?

TMG has been ceased. I strongly suggest you consider an alternative.

currently I cannot afford to buy either:

- asa
- checkpoint

etc

Yes, it replaced ISA 2006 but it has been ceased, about, 1 year ago. TMG 2010 is the last version. Very bad. I've used ISA since the good old days of version "2000".
No, actually I have no suggestions. Many third party products are available on the market, mostly devices.
MS replaced it with another product but the ISA/TMG was very upset since it doesn't provide same ISA/TMG functionality. In the meanwhile, MS ceased this product too. Sorry but I don't remember the product's name.

Sorry: "... bet the ISA/TMG community was very upset..."

The 2 mentioned are well known but there are many others. Some are affordable and others more expensive. The choice is really very wide.

The TMG Forum is a very good source of ideas.

thanks for that advice!  its just as well I have now purchased from ebay an: asa5505 unlimited hosts with security plus license.

the only ones I am aware of are:

checkpoint
pix - which was replaced by an asa
isa 2006 - which was replaced by tmg as you stated
Kaspersky

I know there are others out there, but the firewalls above have had good feed back for solid firewalls.  as for those others out their I don't even know which one to choose as all others say they are good but never no which one to choose.

anyway thanks for the advice.
