Let me be the first of many to suggest:


Look for a NS-20 off of e-bay.. They're fairly easy to spot.. Scale depending on your load and performance..
A NS-5 XP will work nicely for up to 10MB/s of 3DES.. For $900 USD brand new.. 

Line Speed 3DES encryption, and great firewall performance, nice and easy to use. 
Add some Netscreen Remotes (Safe Net OEM version) and you're good to go!

We are currently looking to implement a homeworking
solution for max 300 users. For this matter, i am
wondering if any of you could tell me what is the
benifit in buying separetly VPN and firewall device.
More specifically, comparing the Cisco VPN3000 box
with the PIX firewall, can somebody tell me why should
i use a VPN3000 box if a PIX535 with 6.3 software on
it give me all the VPN and FW capabilities I could
dream of ?

Many thanks,
