Amazing capability for low price, but 5 node limit is troublesome
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) for $250 you can't find anything that comes close to this box. It is similar to their $1000 and up firewalls but geared towards the SOHO market. It is very easy to configure through a browser, though you can access it through a terminal. I should qualify easy, as it is not easy for someone new to firewalls. It is not impossible and with some diligence you could get it working but it isn't...

Great Value for a Powerful SOHO product
 
This is the first "real" VPN router I've set up. It has all the features that I needed and the price is very reasonable. It has a true DMZ port, not just a "DMZ Host" like many other basic NAT routers. I set it up so that the old wireless router was on the DMZ port. That way you can give the wireless security info out to visitors and they can access the internet without gaining access to the LAN. Internal wireless users can use the VPN to access LAN machines. The main r...

The Gold Standard in Firewalls - Cheap
 
I have deployed Checkpoint's regular products in the past and the only big downside was the cost. This product delivers the gold standard in firewalls for a trivial amount and Checkpoint's GUI configuration tool is one of the best.That said, Checkpoint's support has never been anywhere near as strong as Cisco's or IBM's, but I have rarely ever had to call them with their main line products and never with the Sofaware line. Checkpoint seems to have gotten by their on-line subscription...

Nice appliance - support is horrendous
 
I recently bought a Safe@Office 500 for our small office. The appliance itself is very nice, throughput is decent. The issue pops up when you subscribe to antivirus and support. The division of checkpoint that handles this is Safaware. Their website is currently broken so you can't register (11/4/06). This of course does not stop them from getting you to buy subscriptions through the appliance... unfortunately you can't use them. There is chat help on the sofaware website but you can't use...

Safe@Office 500
 
This product works exactly like the VPN-1 Edge device. Yet it cost almost half the price. Seems to be a well made product with a simple GUI interface.

Bad VPN Router
 
This router is good for anything but VPN. I know that sounds a bit harsh, but after wasting significant time and getting no support from Sofaware I find the device is almost useless to access shared resources behind firewall. I am not a beginner and I have done my share VPN setups including other products from Checkpoint. The only thing that works and pretty stable is Remote Desktop over VPN. I tried office mode, setup port rules, etc. I upgraded the firmware, tried the latest Secure Client, I s...

Affordable firewall from the world-class vendor
 
Let me start with what I hate in this unit(yes, it's the right word). When you buy the standard, 5 users version, be ready for nasty surprises - you are going to run out of licenses very soon. Keep in mind that if you also want to use the VPN, every remote user is being counted as 1 more license. I have faced the situation when I had to force my client to spend more money on the add-on licenses after I have recommended this product based on my firewall experience and knowledge of the vendor.
