Subject: Sun Sparc 5 vs. Sun Ultra with Firewall-1

How much traffic can a Sun Sparc 5 handle, with a Firewall-1?

We currently have a 2MBit E1 connection to the Internet, and there are
about 75-100 active connection at the same time, and it's steadily
growing. About 25% of the connections are from 'hidden' private networks,
so it has to be translated.

Can a SS5 handle this, or should we go for an Ultra? What's the limit for
what the SS5 can handle?

Thanks in advance.
