I agree with Dana!! Also why didn't they pick the
Cisco Dedicated VPN products to test? Pix is a fine
VPN box, but cisco has a whole separate line of
dedicated VPN only products (3xxx and 5xxx series).
They really should be comparing apples to apples.
Both IOS devices and the dedicated products support
multiple IKE policies.
