From: "Mark Foster"
We got spammed by Telecom recently with some product theyre offering over
IPNet and ADSL that allows this (or that was how I interpreted it)...
Slowly they are learning about businesses and the Internet :).
The difficulty with firewalling anyone is the media
their service is
delivered on; for Frame/DDS It might be easier but for Jetstream its not,
unless we provide a plug-in-box that gets put in at the clients side....
then youve got the maintenance overhead, etc etc. :P
So whats the alternative, no box? They need one so supply it and make money
And what about layer 2? Only certain people can
influence that in most
The "box" we use is a statefull VPN router, L2 tunnel everything to a smart
VPN NAS/virtual firewall, move NAT to the back end, it solves a lot of
issues like not having L2 from the client and stupid NAT problems with
braindead DSL devices.
