We have to either renew the licence on our Checkpoint Firewall-1 NG
(and upgrade it) or change to another software solution for our
firewall setup.

Our approximately 25000 users pay for internet, some of them use a
pay-as-you-go-system. At the moment the accounting is done by custom
programs that reads the active connections in the FW-memory. We have
two problems with the present setup:

1. FW-1 does not connect the user and the traffic in memory or always
in the logs. Only the source IP. So it is impossible for us to
handle accounting for different users using the same IP.

2. FW-1 does not end active connections immediately after a user has
logged off.

We are in a process of evaluating different options. One of them is
NuFw - an open source product.

Any recommendations of other products you know of will be appreciated.

Regards
Johann
