The Ascends can also do this but I agree that you wouldn't want to filter at
the NAS. Logistical reasons are reason enough to filter at an upstream router
where the dialup traffic is aggregated.

On top of that, from what I've heard about Ascend's software, I'd
rather use cisco's filters, since thier software is better.
