    One does not enquire what or whom is in the blue box.

    Ah, about double what we have then... No doubt our lot will grow to that eventually though!!

    Virtually the same box. Different NIC I think...

    What "Internet related/Filtering/Firewall"?

    I didn't notice it. I just saw the thread title and saw an opportunity to say what I said in my first post.

    Might be a good spec, but I'm not feeling the love. It looks ugly! Smoothwall boxes are meant to be pretty?

    I know... it isn't as pretty as we would have liked (or indeed as pretty as the non-dell-based units). We added a very fancy NIC which meant the standard faceplates couldn't be easily customised... there's talk of doing it anyway, but there's a 300/unit cost at the minute... Hmm.

    Shrink wrap! Like they do with the HP Microserver!

    Does it need to be pretty? It's going to sit in a locked comms room never to be seen again.

    I was going to suggest a printer roller in the top box, and the invoice for it in the one underneath.
