Re: How to reset NetEqualizer

I think I spent around $10k initially, but it has saved me much more in bandwith $.

The cachebox simply caches information from websites my customers visit...

A simple cache for $10k?

You could do something similar for almost free with some flavour of *nix and squid.

True, you dont have someone to wave fingers and scream at when things go wrong.

$10k may seem steep, but it has saved me plenty and I don't have to do anything with it...it just works.

My same take on our Barracuda spam filter. It's not cheap when you first look at it, but it's worth it's weight in gold.

Seen a lot of people complain about these, but it has saved our asses, repeatedly. It just works. When I need support, it's a little bit of nail-biting on the phone going through the gauntlet of opening a case etc etc when something is dead. But every time they've gone in remotely and done magic.

Some things may look expensive at first, but the price is well worth the Tylenol saved.

I looked at NetEQ years ago, and was instantly turned off for most of the reasons mentioned in the thread. Gimme a CCR/x86 with Butch's script any day.
