We just put up a spyware firewall yesterday evening. It is set to Active Pass Through management. We have had to take it down because it introduced unacceptable latency to any traffic that had to traverse the firewall. Do we have a setting wrong or is this normal behavior for this device?Richard

Richard,This is definitley not normal behavior. Have you contacted support yet to troubleshoot the latency? Is the switch set to auto negotiate the NIC?

No, it was forced to 100 Mbits/Full duplex. After looking at the error counts on the router port we set that port to auto-negotiate and the swfw was much happier.
