Subject: RE: suggestions on a good firewall

Well for myself I have a home network
that I'm working with. Like I said
before I just started working on my
MCSE. I'm going to setup a server later
on in the future. See how that works.
But for right now I'm trying to learn as
much as I can on being a good MCSE
Admin.

Well, the FIRST thing you should learn, after getting your MCSE, is basic UNIX, probably via a LINUX distribution.

A really GOOD Sysadmin can do the basics in either of the major systems, Windows or *nix.

For a home network, you can't go wrong with one of those little DSL/Cable router/firewalls.  D-Link, Netgear, Cisco, 
etc.

And with a slightly higher grade of hardware firewall, you can start configuring specific services, etc, through the 
firewall. . .
