    In the woods, doing what bears do.

    Recommend me a firewall to replace Netscreen-25

    Feels like my Netscreen is getting too old... unfortunately I have not found anything to replace it with.
    1. Low cost.
    2. Rack mounted.
    3. No moving parts (fans or other).
    4. Three or more zones (Trust, Untrust, DMZ).
    5. Secure (duh).
    6. Easy to configure, maintain and monitor.
    7. Deep packet inspection would be nice.
    It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning.

    I'd probably recommend a custom built Pfsense box or maybe an Edgerouter 8 (nvm about the er-8 not fanless) but I have no clue what your idea of cheap is. Depending on performance requirements you could save money by just getting a 1U shelf and an edgerouter-x or lite
