Overview of PIX / IOS-FW features? And: NAT on SQLnet2?

Hi all,

having worked with Cisco routers and switches and Chekpoint firewalls, I am new to the world of Cisco security products.

Could someone therfor point me to some nice sources to learn about them, e.g. the difference between pix firewalls and a router with FW IOS.

One particular question I am rapidly searching an answer for is if a cisco firewall can do NAT on SQLnet2 connections?

The main difference is specialization. The router with IOS Firewall Featureset will allow you to employ the router for other uses. The PIX Firewall is dedicated to the firewall tasks, and so does many things in hardware the router does not. The choice depends entirely upon your unique networking environment.
