Carl,


Could you be more specific here? If we stick to the basic HTTP, how can
the firewall provider tell what the HTTP command really transporting?
And how can they convince their customers that they need a new firewall
that works better by poking into the HTTP commands to search for IPP
stuff?


Thanks,
Babak
