In the process, I learned there is a USB Network Native Drivers for ESXi, which ended up being useful because after I upgraded, the onboard NICs in two of my servers were no longer recognized.

Long ago, this site used to be the home for a well-visited FAQ site on Check Point firewall products. This site has served many other purposes over the years, but is currently the home for the PhoneBoy Speaks podcast.

Some other projects I'm doing include: CheckMates, Check Point's user community site, PhoneBoy's Security Theater, a blog where I discuss computer and network security-related topics, as well as PhoneBoy Says, an infrequent personal blog where I discuss more personal issues.
