Title: which product to practice with?
Post by: ilikestuff on September 29, 2006, 09:57:25 AM
Hello all, this is my first post here.  Im am new to checkpoint firewalls, really I dont know much about them.  I do know they are a firewall with a gui, and I wanted to buy one that was used somewhere just for my home lab.  I wondered if I could get you alls imput on which one I should be looking at for experience sake?  This is my own personal budget, please keep in mind, and Id like to get something that will give me a similar experience as if I were working at a company doing this?  Can anyone help with maybe a model or anything to point me in the right direction?  Thanks for your help.

If it is for business, and you can afford it, Sophos Internet Security is for business.  It is near the top and provides outstanding security.

You can scan on a LAN many workstations.

If you want for a home user, use PC Cillin Internet Security.  Yes, Norton and McAfee tout themselves as better, but trust me their spam removal tools are ineffective.

I agree pc cillian is a good product to work with. Also if this is for practice to get the feel for some of this stuff, try any of the share ware products out there zone Alarm which has its problems, Sunbelt is another...

The checkpoiunt gui sits atop an OS - so you'll either need a server product or a dedicated box like one of the Nokia IP series - maybe the IP45 as an example. ACost is aything from a few hundred to several more than that dependant on config.

See http://www.nokia-asia.com/nokia/0,,80770,00.html

The standalone boxes also have a command line and a web front end that allow you to do certain things that are easier than via the gui.

If just getting the soiftware, then that'll cost whatever, but it will sit atop an OS such as Windows server.
