I am Sr. Exchange Engineer and am setting up a lab (or two) in my home. I ordered Comcast Business Class Internet which includes 5 static IP addresses. I understand networking, NAT'ing, port-forwarding etc... enough to request it of our networking team so my projects can move forward ;-) However, I will leave the command line interfaces to you networking gurus.
I am looking for a reasonably-priced, relatively easy to configure GUI-Based Firewall with decent features.
I do not know where the balance between price and features sit. I have heard that chicks dig sonicWALL but I am completely open to suggestions.
Obviously, the firewall must allow me to NAT/port-forward all 5 static IP's to different hosts/ports. Features beyond that? I am not sure, so I turn to you folks to let me know. Is $200 maximum (new/used) completely ridiculous? If I need to spend more - I will. I have the internet on its way first of next week. I am in North Atlanta so I am open to your suggestions via any bricks & mortar, online shop (ebay etc..) or Atlanta craigslist http://atlanta.craigslist.org/sss/
Thank you so much for your time in advance!
