PIX 506E in a basic hosting environment

Can PIX 506E be used in a basic hosting environment ?

If I have few web servers on the Internet with no Inside interface ( Only DMZ ) and all I am looking for is One-To-One NAT, SYNC flood protection and DoS protection. Can 506E do that ?

What is the max concurrent session (inbound) supported on this platform ?

Sure, that would work just fine.

The 506e supports up to 25,000 connections ( )

Thanks for your reply,

I read the webpage, but it does not specify whether the number (25,000) is for bi-directional traffic or not. And it does not have any similar scenarios of what I want to do. I have some experience with the higher models 525/535 and I mainly wonder if this is just a scaled down PIX with enough power to support 24/7 uptime servers that do not require much traffic .

Thanks Again
