And to be honest, obtaining a trial version of MS Proxy 2.0 is matter of
*minutes*, while obtaining evaluation version from some of 'major' vendors
is matter of *months* sometimes (and matter of $$$ sometimes, depending on
the vendor).

What experiences you people have with some 'major' firewall vendors, when
it comes to support, response, and obtaining an evaluation version of
firewalls? And if you live outside US, are you 'forced' to contact local
distributor? (that can be a *real* pain sometimes ;)

Well, big plus for M$ this time! [I can't beleive that I wrote this ;]
