Default firewall recommendation request


I'm looking for a Hardware Firewall that can
be given a whitelist of IP addresses to permit
to use FTP.

In looking at some possibilities I have not been able to see
this specific capability!

Thanks.

Thanks!!!! I've contacted WatchGuard and they're sending a quote and a
URL for a manual!

Well, their man recommended the "X10E" (12 x ports 10/100) - sounds
like overkill for what I need.

You may want to look at SonicWall's offerings. I admin a pretty large
network. We use Juniper/NetScreen firewalls at the core and they would
most likely be overkill as well. Any device that can provide a level of
access control based on network layer (layer 3) addressing would be
sufficient. You should just flag the traffic destined for port 21 and
check it against a valid list of addresses. You can accomplish this
easily with a PRO 100 SonicWall or a primitive Cisco router (1700
series) using access-control lists.

Any further questions are welcome. Thanks.
