Firewall in Routers??

Wonder what they would recommend for a DS1 or a DS3, then. BFR, anyone?

What was the title of the seminar you were attending and who was the
speaker? Was this something on a slide or just something that the speaker

#1 is true since the CIP (Channel Interface Processor) only plugs into
  a 7000/7500 class box. (unless of course you are using some
  other channel attached device and connecting the router via
  token ring or serial lines).

We'll try to sort out which mkting person was out running amok
and fix the presentation (and most likely the speaker).


The seminar was called "Building a Global Corporate Intranet". As far as I
can tell this same seminar is on the road being presented all over the
country. The reference to the 7500 routers is on the slides. To the best
of my recollection, the speaker never refered to the routers by model
number. I attended the presentation at Tyson's Corner. There were about
400 persons at the seminar. The publication number of the handout
containing the slides is: 0563_02F7 / 843601-01

Your welcome,

Thanks for the info, Robert.

And now back to your irregularly scheduled unrelated threads....


Sadly the amount of traffic saying "this isnt on topic"
is greater than the amount of traffic caused by the thread.

Even more sadly, if you discuss routers on the firewall list..
you get another group of blinkered "firewall experts" who whine
about it not being on topic.

The problem comes when you have a design that requires you to tread the
fine line between buying a router with firewalling capabilities and
buying a firewall with routing capabilities.
The router gurus refer you to a security expert....
The security expert says "whats BGP ? OSPF?... I dont deal with layer 3"

Motto: a blinkered view will only portray a narrow picture.
