And if you want to use Network Systems Corp's "Borderguard Router" or their
"The Security Router", you can use the Data Privacy Facility to provide
encryption *and/or* authentication between their NSC router and yours. This
way you would only need to pass authenticated SNMP messages through the
firewall. Anything else coming in to port 161 or 162 would be dropped.
Check out NSC's home page at http://www.network.com for more info
