Wasn't being aggressive... was laughing my ass off that you compared a 
firewall like Smoothie, or IPCop (95% based on my technology) to ESmith 
which is a device running Samba which also claims to be a firewall. The 
fact that it says server - should be enough to make anyone with common 
sense to run away - fast. SME / ESmith is cool BEHIND A HUGE FIREWALL or 
something like M0n0 but you cannot - cannot - do a pilot or even a test 
and compare SME / ESmith to any firewall product. ESmith can best be 
described as a capable web managed file server handicapped by crap 
programmers, appalling attention to detail and a clueless approach to 
service control and CERT advisories.
