1.4 Detailed Features
The Vigor2300 router provides many built-in server and
software features to provide a convenient comprehensive solution
for your SOHO network.
WAN Features
Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) Client: For DSL
users, the router has a built-in PPPoE client for establishing a
connection with the ISP. There is no need to install a further PPPoE
driver on your computers.
Point-to-Point Tunnelling Protocol (PPTP) Client: Some DSL
modems (e.g. Alcatel modems) only provide a PPTP local connection
for an end user computer. The router has a built-in PPTP client for
establishing a connection for your local network. There is no need to
install a PPTP client driver on your computers.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Client: In most
cable modem environments, the router supports a DHCP client on the
WAN port. They can automatically get IP network settings from a cable
head-end access server.
Dynamic DNS (DDNS) Client: For most dynamic IP users, the client
can update the WAN IP address to the registered DDNS provider when
the WAN IP has been changed.
Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) Client: For the router, the
client can get network time information from the specfied time server
and provide a time base for call scheduling usage.
8
Network Features
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Server: The server
provides an easy-to-configure function for your local IP network. It can
automatically assign IP network configurations for local PCs, such as IP
address, IP netmask, gateway IP address, and Domain Name server etc.
Domain Name Server (DNS) Proxy: The DNS proxy maintains a
DNS cache, including a mapping table of domain names and IP
addresses. The proxy also remembers DNS query packets sent through
the router and saves them into its own DNS cache. For enhanced speed,
when a DNS query packet enters the router, the proxy searches its local
DNS cache. If matched, the router sends an answer to the host that sent
the DNS query packet. Only unmatched DNS queries require querying a
WAN Domain Name Server.
Mutiple Network Address Translation (Multi-NAT): Multi-NAT
allows multiple SOHO users to concurrently connect to an Internet
Service Provider (ISP) via a single Internet access account or multiple
statically-assigned IP addresses.
Routing Information Protocol (RIP) Support: Used in most
LAN-to-LAN applications. The RIP protocol exchanges routing
information between routers.
9
Security Features
VPN (Virtual Private Network) with PPTP/L2TP/IPSec
Encryption:
The VPN function enables linking of remote Networks via the Internet
through authenticated and secure tunnels.
Remote Access Server (RAS): RAS provides remote dial-in access
services for home workers, branch offices, or telecommuters. The router
offer 10 dial-in user profiles, including an authentication mechanism
through CHAP/PAP and Calling Line Identification (CLID), secure
callback functions, and 16 Lan-to-Lan Dialer Profiles, etc.
Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) Client:
When a dial-in user is coming and the user account is not included in
router database. The client will issue a login request which must include
a shared secret with the RADIUS server. These extended accounts will
keep in the server database.
Firewall: In addition to the built-in NAT mechanism, the router features
another powerful firewall to protect your local network, or to deny
specified local user's access to unauthorized network services.
10
Management Features
Web (HTTP) Server: A Web browser is the most common tool used to
surf the Internet. You may use Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape's
browser, to configure the router as easily as surfing a website.
Telnet Terminal Server: The Telnet User Interface (TUI) is an efficient
method of configuring and managing routers. It utilizes a traditional
command-line user interface and is mainly for advanced configuration,
management, and troubleshooting.
Remote Management: The system manager can remotely manage
the routers through an ISDN remote dial-in, or ISDN or DSL/Cable
WAN interface.
Built-in Flash ROM: The Flash ROM memory saves the router firmware
and configurations, even after power down.
Firmware Upgrade (TFTP) Server: Using this server and the
Firmware Upgrade Utility software, you may easily upgrade to the
latest firmware whenever enhanced features are added.
