It's almost like the IPv6 chicken and egg drama. That Gig connection
won't do you any good unless your neighbor also has a Gig, and you
guys are actively passing traffic. I have to look pretty hard to find
sources that can feed me > 20Mb/s. Xferring ISOs across a VPN to a
client at 50Mb/s speeds is pretty farking awesome though.

We have several deployed. I don't care for them (or anything else
really) in bridged mode, it's a bit of a PITA to have to sniff what's
going in *and* what's going out to try and figure out which
"sniffer/helper" application does something it doesn't like. In
Routed firewall mode, they are neat, but everything is done in
software, so you need a beefy box to handle any real traffic (> 2 users).

Who wants to help me back up my Technet Archives now that MS is no
longer going to do me that solid?
