What is the cost for the Cisco Firewall?

Postby rmcphie-p40 » Sun Feb 14, 2010 10:56 pm

Hi,

I have been working with the Stake President and Stake Clerk to order the Cisco ASA 5505 Firewall from ldscatalog.com for a new DSL line for a meetinghouse with 2 wards. This thread seems to indicate that the $500 firewall cost is covered by church HQ, but our Stake Clerk says church distribution simply told him the cost was $500+tax. Since the thread I mentioned is a few years old, I thought I'd ask if those policies have changed in more recent years/months.

Will the stake truly end up with a net $500+tax charge for placing this order?

(If so, that may be a deal-breaker for us)

Thanks,
Robert


PS I have found these forums to be of great help to me, so thanks again!

If it has, this is the first that I've heard of it.

We just ordered one for our stake and as far as I can see we didn't get charged for anything. Distribution said we wouldn't be charged.

The Church-managed Firewall item on ldscatalog.com (visible only with a stake login) has a list price of $500, but at the bottom of the description it says in bold letters: "Your unit will not be charged for this item." My stake has ordered one, and indeed there was no charge.

Just to confirm, THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR A CHURCH-MANAGED FIREWALL!

Thank you all for your speedy replies! I was hoping for just such an answer...

I will communicate this info to the Stake Clerk, and I am confident we will be able to move forward now.

These forums are great!
