PRODUCT FEATURES AND BENEFITS...
- Internet connection to an ADSL modem via an RJ-11 ADSL port
- Local network connection via a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet port
- DHCP for dynamic IP configuration, and DNS for domain name mapping
- Firewall with Stateful Packet Inspection, client privileges, intrusion detection, and NAT
- NAT also enables multi-user Internet access via a single user account, and virtual server functionality (providing protected access to Internet services such as Web, FTP, email, and Telnet)
- VPN pass-through (IPSec-ESP Tunnel mode, L2TP, PPTP)
- User-definable application sensing tunnel supports applications requiring multiple connections
- Easy setup through a Web browser on any operating system that supports TCP/IP
- Compatible with all popular Internet applications
Many advanced networking features are provided by the Arion 3100/3200:
- Wired LAN
The ADSL Router provides connectivity to 10/100 Mbps devices, making it easy to create a network in small offices or homes.
- Internet Access
This device supports Internet access through an ADSL connection. Since many ADSL providers use PPPoE or PPPoA to establish communications with end users, the ADSL Router includes built-in clients for these protocols, eliminating the need to install these services on your computer.
- Shared IP Address
The ADSL Router provides Internet access for up to 253 users via a single shared IP address. Using only one ISP account, multiple users on your network can browse the Web at the same time.
- Virtual Server
If you have a fixed IP address, you can set the ADSL Router to act as a virtual host for network address translation. Remote users access various services at your site using a constant IP address. Then, depending on the requested service (or port number), the ADSL Router can route the request to the appropriate server (at another internal IP address). This secures your network from direct attack by hackers, and provides more flexible management by allowing you to change internal IP addresses without affecting outside access to your network.
- DMZ Host Support
Allows a networked computer to be fully exposed to the Internet. This function is used when NAT and firewall security prevent an Internet application from functioning correctly.
The ADSL Router supports security features that deny Internet access to specified users, or filter all requests for specific services that the administrator does not want to serve. The ADSL Router's firewall also blocks common hacker attacks, including IP Spoofing, Land Attack, Ping of Death, IP with zero length, Smurf Attack, UDP port loopback, Snork Attack, TCP null scan, and TCP SYN flooding.
- Virtual Private Network (VPN Pass-through)
The ADSL Router supports three of the most commonly used VPN protocols - PPTP, L2TP, and IPSec. The VPN protocols supported by the ADSL Router are briefly described below.
--Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol : Provides a secure tunnel for remote client access to a PPTP security gateway. PPTP includes provisions for call origination and flow control required by ISPs.
--L2TP merges the best features of PPTP and L2F : Like PPTP, L2TP requires that the ISP's routers support the protocol.
--IP Security : Provides IP network-layer encryption. IPSec can support large encryption networks (such as the Internet) by using digital certificates for device authentication.
