Our company's sonicwall just died out and i need a firewall replacement. Sonicwall is really strange.. The sonicwall has two ports wan and lan.. The wan is hooked up to the csu/dsu router and the lan is hooked up to a hub for internal networks. The sonicwall is only used to block ports but all computers in the lan, sonicwall, and csu/dsu router uses static ip provided by our internet provider. It is really a weird setup which i don't approve of, but I need something that can do the job like sonicwall. I dunno if it is possible.. I have a firewall at home but the lan is a internal ips

Anyone uses a suse firewall (linuxbox) in a coorporate environment?

Yep, we do.

or should just go ahead with a hardware firewall like Sonicwall.

Does it do anything extra that you have a need for?
