The Marlin Network Access Servers’ IPX implementation provides increased network security and reduced overhead traffic through its IPX RIP and SAP Direction Control feature. IP NauticaRS provides all standard IP functions and supports major Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Request for Comments (RFCs) for protocols including IP, TCP, RIP, ARP, ICMP, UDP, DHCP, BootP Relay, Dynamic RIP routing, and static routes. This range of support ensures users highly reliable, standardsbased connectivity and interoperability. Marlin Network Access Servers’ IP implementation provides increased network security and reduced overhead traffic through its IP RIP Direction Control feature. This feature controls the flow of broadcast traffic over the network. Broadcast traffic generated by IP RIP can be configured as send only, receive only, both, or neither on a per-path basis. NauticaRS also allows static routes to be “blacklisted” to allow DADS to be supported for dynamic and static routing table entries. This provides greater resilience in a meshed ISDN environment. IPX The Marlin Network Access Servers’ IPX implementation supports LSAP/LLC2, SNAP, and Novell Proprietary protocol. RIP routing is also supported to ensure that the best path to a destination is used. Additionally, the Marlin’s IPX Default Route feature enables packets to be sent to an address that is not known in the Marlin Network Access Servers’ routing table. Bay Networks also reduces traffic on the network through its SAP and SPX spoofing support. Frame Relay Bay Networks NauticaRS Frame Relay support allows remote access to corporate networks or the Internet over public or private Frame Relay networks. Marlin Network Access Servers can support up to 64 PVCs over a Frame Relay network. This Frame Relay implementation supports RFC1490 encapsulation, ensuring multivendor interoperability over Frame Relay for IP/IPX routing and transparent bridging. PPP and Multilink PPP Industry-standard Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) and RFC 1990 — Multilink PPP (MP) — are supported for multivendor interoperability over ISDN and leased lines. PPP and MP are enhanced by the Marlin Network Access Servers’ support of Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP), Bridge Control Protocol (BCP), and Bandwidth Allocation Control Protocol (BACP), which extend connectivity, ensure adequate bandwidth, and provide security. PPTP allows PC users to extend the PPP connection over a composite path of LAN and ISDN links. An extension of PPP, PPTP supports virtual private networks (VPNs) and provides branch office and remote/mobile users low-cost access to corporate network resources via a secure Internet connection. This eliminates long distance charges as well as management and security issues associated with maintaining private networks. BCP allows non-routed protocols such as AppleTalk to be bridged over a PPP link to any other router or bridge supporting the PPP/BCP standard. Bandwidth Allocation Control Protocol (BACP) manages the bandwidth available during Multilink calls. Via BACP, a platform not initiating the call has the ability to negotiate bandwidth with the platform initiating the call. The negotiation can be based on available resources or through the dynamic monitoring of the actual traffic across the link. This solves the problem of insufficient bandwidth, which often occurs when ISDN links are repeatedly initialized and brought down (thrashing), by ensuring that both ends have adequate bandwidth for operation. Data Compression NauticaRS software enables the Marlin Network Access Servers to increase the amount of data that can be carried across an ISDN or leased line. Bay Networks routers provide the most comprehensive data compression support in the industry. This support ensures compression interoperability with a wide array of remote environments, ranging from third-party routers to Microsoft Windows workstations. Marlins use Lempel-Ziv-based STAC data compression techniques and support RFC 1962 — Compression Control Protocol (CCP) — along with Bay Networks WAN Compression Protocol (WCP). Microsoft Point-toPoint Compression (MPPC) is supported to optimize throughput in customerspecific applications. Bay Networks data compression support improves performance and throughput without compromising compatibility by using standards-based techniques. Dial Services Remote office connectivity and availability is ensured via NauticaRS dial-up services support, which includes Dial-on-Demand, Bandwidth-on-Demand, and Dial Backup for the Marlin Network Access Servers. Data Sheet Marlin Network Access Servers 5 Marlins also support ISDN Terminal Adapters. This enables Marlin Network Access Servers to accept and make calls to standalone ISDN access routers that use PPP and PC/notebooks using integral or standalone ISDN Terminal Adapters supporting PPP or V.120. Dial-On-Demand Marlin Network Access Servers take full advantage of the speed and bandwidth of ISDN lines while maintaining control of ISDN call costs. Its industry-leading features for minimizing line usage help network managers realize maximum cost savings with ISDN Dialon-Demand connections for sites with intermittent data transfers. The Marlin Network Access Server brings up a link automatically when there is data to transfer and closes down the link once traffic has stopped for a specified amount of time. Bandwidth-on-Demand Marlin Network Access Servers provide Bandwidth-onDemand via Multilink PPP to provide additional bandwidth across an ISDN link during peak usage periods. BACP is used as the mechanism to add or delete links. Once line usage reaches a predefined level, the Marlin Network Access Server will open a second B-channel and load balance traffic across both channels. When line usage drops below the predefined level, the Marlin Network Access Server closes down one B-channel and returns to the original bandwidth. For Marlin Network Access Servers with ISDN interfaces, Bandwidthon-Demand can be used to increase the synchronous port’s bandwidth by using ISDN channels during peak traffic periods. Bandwidth-on-Demand can also be used to add bandwidth to ISDN B-channels that are already being used. 6 Data Sheet Marlin Network Access Servers Dial Backup The Marlin Network Access Servers can use ISDN to back up a dedicated link. In the event that the dedicated link goes down, the Marlin Network Access Servers activate the ISDN connection in its place. When the dedicated link is restored, the Marlin Network Access Servers terminate the backup connection and resume use of the dedicated link. SeaView Bay Networks SeaView configu- rator is a Windows 95 Wizard application that provides an easy-to-use and consistent graphical user interface (GUI) to set up or make changes to Marlin Network Access Servers. Initial configuration of the Marlin is done using the Bay Networks SeaView Windows 95 Wizard set up facility. This allows users to configure the router quickly, easily, and accurately. Configuration and Management Through NauticaRS, Bay Networks Marlin Network Access Servers provide many features that simplify configuration and provide SNMP-based network management capabilities. Marlin Network Access Servers can be configured and managed from any local or remote ANSI-standard terminal or from a PC on the network using Telnet. SNMP-based management systems including HP OpenView, Tivoli NetView for AIX, and Sun Microsystems Solstice Domain Manager can be used to manage a Marlin Network Access Server. Bay Command Console (BCC) This terminal-based (TTY-compatible) tool enables local or remote platform installation and maintenance. It is accessed through a directly attached terminal or PC running terminal emulation software or a Telnet session. With support for BCC, NauticaRS provides command line syntax, which is consistent with other Bay Networks platforms that support BCC. This is ideal for situations where the management of the remote routers is being performed from a central site. Security Bay Networks NauticaRS enables authorized remote users to reach all the information they need while potential intruders are prohibited by its multilevel security features. Marlin Network Access Servers support the Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS), a client/server-based security protocol. This enables the Marlin to provide a comprehensive set of security features and meet varied network requirements. Residing on a Windows 95 or Windows NT platform, and when used with the Marlin, RADIUS provides network-wide authentication and authorization to maintain security when remote access is required. Several levels of comprehensive security features are provided including Calling Line Identification (CLI) feature, which provides verification that incoming ISDN calls have authorization to connect. For PPP connections, PAP and CHAP are supported. Additionally, the Marlin Network Access Servers’ RADIUS implementation will operate with other third-party RADIUS servers.
