This time I come documented. If this guys are not subjective then PIX is
behind Netscreen. See the comparatives on the link below,

Still not convinced ?

This really isn't the proper forum for firewall debates as these have
nothing to do with the R&S exam.  You may find more interesting responses
posting to a security forum, although I think that if you truly look at
things and have potentially implemented both series of firewalls, you'll
find that they are very close, and the PIX is better at some things while
the Netscreen is better at others.

There's really no way to make a bold, blanket statement that you have
without other people considering you simply "uninformed".

PS.  As for QoS.  What kinda support are you looking for? Your firewalls
should firewall, not be making preferential treatment decisions for your
network.  "Support" is a vague word, and yes the PIX knows how to handle
different IP Prec/DSCP levels.  But look at your net design anyway.

Hi Admed,
PIX doesn't support QoS. BTW, you can configure QoS at the gateway router.
Thanks,

Kim Phong.

Subject: QOS on PIX

What is the best way to configure  rate-limiting on servers if they are
directly connected to PIX.  Does PIX support QOS, if not then what is the
best way to confiures some media servers that are connectely directly on PIX
DMZ ports to prevent servers from chocking since other traffic such as ftp
file transfer, email and others are leaving the network at the same time.

Thanks,

Ahmed
