Available worldwide from amazon.co.uk (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0201699508/phoneboycom-21) and elsewhere.

My book explains how to build, implement, and maintain Check Point FireWall-1 4.1 and earlier. It's packed with tools, tricks, tips, and checklists not found anywhere else, including on phoneboy.com itself. http://www.phoneboy.com/attachments/TWiki/SmiliesPlugin/smile.gif Every major feature of FireWall-1 is covered. Filled with screen shots and sample configurations, the book features step-by-step instructions that can be replicated easily on standard equipment. Developed through years of product support experience, this book is an invaluable resource for FireWall-1 administrators working on Unix, NT, or Nokia platforms.

Not convinced yet? Take a look at the Table of Contents toc.pdf (167.8 K) (http://www.phoneboy.com/bin/view.pl/bags/toc.pdf) and a sample chapter sample.pdf (1.1 M) (http://www.phoneboy.com/bin/view.pl/bags/sample.pdf) . A PDF viewer of some sort will be required.

Since I can't fix what's printed on dead trees, see the the Errata page (http://www.phoneboy.com/bin/view.pl/Personal/EssentialCPFW1Errata). for any errors. You can report any new ones by adding text to the Errata page (http://www.phoneboy.com/bin/view.pl/Personal/EssentialCPFW1Errata).
