DrayTek Vigor2960 Dual-WAN Security Firewall Router

Vigor2960 Dual WAN

IPv4 / IPv6 Ready Operating System including new object-based Firewall
WAN Protocol
Ethernet PPPoE, PPTP, DHCP client, static IP, L2TP*, IPv6 ready.
Dual WAN
Outbound Policy Based Load Balance Allow your local network to access Internet using multiple Internet connections with high-level of Inter connectivity availability.
Two dedicated Ethernet WAN ports (Gigabit WAN)
WAN fail-over or load-balanced connectivity.
Protocols PPTP, IPSec, L2TP, L2TP over IPSec.
Up to 200 Sessions Simultaneously LAN to LAN, remote access (teleworker-to-LAN), dial-in or dial-out.
VPN Trunking VPN load-balancing and VPN backup.*
LDAP / Active Directory Lightweight directory access protocol. The enterprises use LDAP / Active Directory authentication technology to allow administrator, IT personnel and users to be authenticated when trying to access company's Intranet environment.
NAT-Traversal (NAT-T) VPN over routes without VPN pass-through.
PKI Certificate Digital signature (X.509).
IKE Authentication Pre-shared key; IKE phase 1 aggressive / standard modes & phase 2 selectable lifetimes.
Authentication Hardware-based MD5, SHA-1.
Encryption MPPE and hardware-based AES / DES / 3DES.
RADIUS Client Authentication for PPTP remote dial-in.
DHCP over IPSec Because DrayTek add a virtual NIC on the PC, thus, while connecting to the server via IPSec tunnel, PC will obtain an IP address from the remote side through DHCP protocol, which is quite similar with PPTP.
GRE over IPSec GRE is used when IP packets need to be sent from one network to another without being parsed by any intervening routers.
Dead Peer Detection (DPD) When there is traffic between the peers, it is not necessary for one peer to send a keep-alive to check for liveness of the peer because the IPSec traffic serves as implicit proof of the availability of the peer.
Smart VPN Software Utility Provided free of charge for teleworker convenience (Windows 7 / Vista / XP including 32 / 64 bit).
Easy of Adoption No additional client or remote site licensing required.
Industrial-standard Interoperability Compatible with other leading 3rd party vendor VPN devices.
Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) Outgoing / Incoming traffic inspection based on connection information.
Content Security Management (CSM) Appliance-based gateway security and content filtering.
Multi-NAT You have been allocated multiple public IP address by your ISP. You hence can have a one-to-one relationship between a public IP address and an internal / private IP address. This means that you have the protection of NAT (see earlier) but the PC can be addressed directly from the outside world by its aliased public IP address, but still by only opening specific ports to it (for example TCP port 80 for a HTTP / Web server).
Port Redirection The packet is forwarded to a specific local PC if the port number matches with the defined port number. You can also translate the external port to another port locally.
Open Ports As port redirection (above) but allows you to define a range of ports.
DMZ Port* This opens up a single PC completely. All incoming packets will be forwarded onto the PC with the local IP address you set. The only exceptions are packets received in response to outgoing requests from other local PCs or incoming packets which match rules in the other two methods.
The precedence is as follows:
Port Redirection > Open Ports > DMZ
Policy-based IP Packet Filter The header information of an IP packet (IP or MAC source / destination addresses; source / destination ports; DiffServ attribute; direction dependent, bandwidth dependent, remote-site dependent.
DoS / DDoS Prevention Act of preventing customers, users, clients or other computers from accessing data on a computer.
IP Address Anti-spoofing Source IP address check on all interfaces: only IP addresses classified within the defined IP networks are allowed.
Object-based Firewall Utilizes object-oriented approach to firewall policy.
Notification E-mail alert and logging via syslog.
Bind IP to MAC Address Flexible DHCP with IP-MAC binding.
User / Rule base User base integrates LDAP / Active Directory authentication to enforce policies.*
System Management
Web-based User Interface (HTTP / HTTPS) Integrated web server for the configuration of routers via Internet browsers with HTTP or HTTPS.
DrayTek's Quick Start Wizard Let administrator adjust time zone and promptly set up the Internet (PPP / PPTP and ISDN CLIP).
CLI (Command Line Interface, Telnet / SSH) Remotely administer computers via the telnet.
DHCP Client / Relay / Server Provides an easy-to configure function for your local IP network.
Dynamic DNS When you connect to your ISP, by broadband or ISDN you are normally allocated an dynamic IP address. i.e. the public IP address your router is allocated changes each time you connect to the ISP. If you want to run a local server, remote users cannot predict your current IP address to find you
Administration Access Control The password can be applied to authentication of administrators.
Configuration Backup / Restore If the hardware breaks down, you can recover the failed system within an acceptable time. Through TFTP, the effective way is to backup and restore configuration between remote hosts.
Port-based VLAN Create separate groups of users via segmenting each of the Ethernet ports. Hence, they can or can't communicate with users in other segments, as required.
Built-in Diagnostic Function Dial-out trigger, routing table, ARP cache table, DHCP table, NAT sessions table, wireless VLAN online station table, data flow monitor, traffic graph, ping diagnosis, trace route.
NTP Client / Call Scheduling The Vigor has a real time clock which can update itself from your browser manually or more conveniently automatically from an Internet time server (NTP). This enables you to schedule the router to dial-out to the Internet at a preset time, or restrict Internet access to certain hours. A schedule can also be applied to LAN-to-LAN profiles (VPN or direct dial) or some of the content filtering options.
Firmware Upgrade via HTTP / TFTP / TR-069 Using the TFTP server and the firmware upgrade utility software, you may easily upgrade to the latest firmware whenever enhanced features are added.
User Management Dial-in access management (PPTP / L2TP and mOTP) and LDAP / Active Directory integration.
Tag-based VLAN (802.1q) By means of using a VLAN ID, a tag-based VLAN can identify VLAN group membership (Support 20 VLAN groups).
Support GVRP protocol in conjunction with switch (e.g. VigorSwitch)
Remote Maintenance With Telnet / SSL, SSH (with password or public key), browser (HTTP / HTTPS), TFTP or SNMP, firmware upgrade via HTTP / HTTPS or TFTP.
Wake On LAN A PC on LAN can be woken up from an idle / stand by state by the router it connects when it receives a special wake up packet on its Ethernet interface.
Logging via Syslog Syslog is a method of logging router activity.
SNMP Management SNMP management via SNMP v1 / v2, MIB II
VigorACS SI Centralized Management TR-069 based
External Device Auto-detection mechanism to manage Vigor devices such as router / s itch / wireless AP

User-defined Class-based Rules More flexibility
Routing Functions
Router IP and NetBIOS / IP multi protocol router
Advanced Routing and Forwarding Complete independent management and configuration of IP networks in the device, i.e. individual settings for DHCP, DNS, Firewall, VLAN, Routing, QoS and etc.
DNS DNS cache / proxy.
DHCP DHCP client / relay / server.
NTP NTP client, automatic adjustment for daylight-saving time.
Policy-based Routing Based on firewall rules, certain data types are marked for specific routing, e.g. to particular remote sites or lines.
Dynamic Routing It is with routing protocol of RIP v2 / OSPF v2 / v3*. Learning and propagating routes; separate settings for WAN and LAN.
Static Routing An instruction to re-route particular traffic through to another local gateway, instead of sending it onto the Internet with the rest of the traffic. A static route is just like a diversion sign on a road
