A simple tool to achieve these results would be Firewall Informer from Blade
Their marketing blurb goes something like this " Blade Software created
Firewall Informer to enable audit, security and network staff to effectively
validate the deployment, configuration and performance of firewalls simply
and easily.  There is no need for extensive knowledge of multiple platforms

This is not a pen-testing tool you need direst access to both sides of the

[Disclaimer:  I run a banner on my site for Blade, not for money but a copy
of the product, coz it looks kinda s3xy.  The presence of the banner has in
no way influenced this post, if I thought it was cr4p I'd still say so]

take care

Exactly what does he mean by 'firewall security tests'  this could
include remote attempts to bypassing the firewall or querying inside
machines.  Or it could include reviewing the ACL's on the firewall it's
self.  As far as tools the only thing I utilize is hping2 or firewalker
for all of you die-hards out there.

Hi, folks.

A customer of mine is asking for 'firewall security tests', including
(if any) pen tests with reports, graphics and so on. Can you please
suggest sites (url's) where I can get it? Like tools, howto's, recipes,
