    It works fine for home applications. But you might want to get something a little beefier for the office.

    Get a Webramp 700s (700s-5BR) from www.centrix-intl.com ($50 or less) and turn it into a sonicwall soho by updating to the 5.1.70 SOHO firmware. It is the same exact hardware... The upgrade algorithm has been cracked so you can upgrade the firewall for VPN access, unlimited users, etc...

    I had my boss buy one instead of using some ICS wannabe software.. It worked pretty well for what we wanted it to do.. Plus, it blocked ICQ and MSN which was a plus for some of the people working. (non-profit organization which didn't want the computers to be used solely for IM chat)

    I'm not sure I'd want a security product that's so easily cracked...probably means nothing, but it just doesn't feel right.

    I wonder how legal that is actually for a business. I guess it could be legal since your not stealing technically.
