Re: advantages of PIX vs. IOS firewall

Hi Charlie,

PIX is a professional firewall, and it is a stateful firewall. It basically can monitor all the TCP and UDP sessions and much more powerfull than a IOS firewall.

Many firewall features PIX have but IOS firewall might not have, because IOS firewall just provide basic firewall function.
