Differences between ACE and FWSM

Hi, been studying and deploying FWSM for a while and now starting to do the same with ACE. After studying the capabilities, I'm starting to wonder the difference between ACE and FWSM. I know that ACE has much more features than FWSM (loadbalancing etc) But it also can do the same things that FWSM can do. What can the FWSM do, that ACE can't do ??

Thanks

Re: Differences between ACE and FWSM

Indeed ACE comes with a quite complete list of security features.

However, the list is limited to those protocol that ACE understands like HTTP, FTP, RTSP,...

I believe the FWSM has a longer list of supported protocols.
