Advanced VPN router, but difficult to setup

Overstock
26 November 2006
  • Summary: I've used a number of routers from the FVS series. All of them are easy to setup for basic firewall/router use, but are always very difficult to configure for client VPN connections. The documentation is not clear, but the product is solid. The routers typically do not include the Netgear VPN client software, which was an additional purchase for me. The Cisco VPN client may also be used with some configurations.

Almost a good piece of kit

  • Summary: For the average wired office or home network this is a good piece of kit. It works well with almost all of the devices on my network. My ISP does DHCP if the device connected to the cable modem has the right MAC address. Fortunately you can set the MAC address of the FSV318. Where it falls down is the DMZ.

  • Excerpt: Всё сказанное касается модели "NETGEAR ProSafe Gigabit 8 Port VPN Firewall FVS318G".
  • Pros: Простые функции по фильтрации траффа по заданным словам выполняет. Гигабит по внутренним портам держит. Устойчивая работа на ОДНОМ канале VPN.
  • Cons: Нелогичное меню управления, часто "ходовые" пункты управления запихнуты "в сторону". Держит один и только один канал VPN (хотя в доке и в техподдержке по телефону заявили что "точно пять каналов"). Причем до пяти каналов (возможно, не проверял) держит только при запуске дополнительной софтинки скачиваемой за дополнительные деньги, устанавливаемой на сервере (станции) в LAN-сегменте. Скачал триальную версию, попробовал и заплакал - софтинка сырая, почти без настроек, н...

  • Summary: Premetto che lavoro su dispositivi Cisco che per antonomasia sono non di facile confiugrazione. Il prezzo del dispositivo è accettabile, l'assistenza ottima, veloce e professionale. Presenta ben 8 porte ethernet gigabit e 1 porta a cui collegare un modem o un router adsl. Le funzioni sono all'altezza del fascia del prodotto, lo consiglio per casa e piccoli uffici.
  • Pros: Economico ottimo supporto di assistenza telefonica
  • Cons: Client VPN a pagamento

Vorsicht vor der reversion v3

  • Summary: die hardware hat sich geändert: 100Mbit wan interface und eine schnellere CPU -> besserer vpn durchsatz. dafür hört das dns-forwarding nach ein paar minuten auf zu gehen. d.h. wenn man den dhcp verwendet haben die clients den router als dns und dieser geht dann nimmer. mit den zu erwarteten folgen. abhilfe: manuell die dnsen des isps eintragen dann gehts wieder.
