  4. Demonstration of Watch Guard by Mr. Takeda
    Watch Guard was displayed at ADAMNET booth in Linux World Conference which was held same day. I asked Mr.Takeda to bring it to meeting.
    Watch Guard is firewall. This product is managed via web and the body is the same as PC/AT and Linux. But it use flash memory instead of disk then so it is safe when the power goes down. I hope this kind of product becomes more available in the market.
Thank you so much for Mr. Yamamoto who arrange the party after the meeting. Also, I deeply appreciate Prof. Matsuda with Tokyo Denki University who offer meeting place. I'd like to have talk with you again soon.
