Melvin,

Watch Guard still requires an installed client at the remote sites and
since we can't install anything on the remote computers it won't work
for us.  :(  The reason this is so expensive is only a handful of
vendors have it.  This somes like a job for <Announcer Voice> Open
Source Man!

Thanks for the suggestion,

Mike
