R910 Ethernet Router

R910 Ethernet Router
Affordably Add Firewall, Secure VPN, and Robust
Routing to DSL and Cable Modem Connections
Plug and play configuration
without entering an IP Address
Built-in firewall to protect LAN
resources from Internet intruders
Secure VPN to provide restricted
access to LAN resources over the
NAT and dynamic MultiNAT for
secure Internet connectivity, access
to LAN-based servers, and dynamic
use of multimedia applications
Built-in 4-port 10-BaseT Ethernet
addresses for multimedia
applications, such as NetMeeting or
Combining business-class routing,
management, and security, the
Netopia R910 Ethernet Router
affordably allows multiple users to
securely access the Internet through
a single DSL or Cable modem.
Netopia makes connecting a local
area network (LAN) to DSL or Cable
simple. The R910 includes an
integrated 4-port Ethernet hub for
connecting workstations, servers, or
printers. Integrated network address
translation (NAT) and robust dynamic
host configuration protocol (DHCP)
support allow the Netopia R910
Router and entire LAN to be fully
configured without entering IP
Versatile Secure VPN features allow
remote users, mobile workers,
remote offices, or trusted business
partners to access the LAN from
anywhere on the Internet using a
secure, encrypted tunnel. Netopia’s
secure VPN saves business money by
eliminating the need for remote
access servers (RAS), by reducing
long-distance phone charges, and by
using the built-in VPN client included
with Microsoft Windows.
Only Netopia takes such powerful
business-class features and makes
them so easy-to-use and affordable.
Netopia also includes Dynamic
MultiNAT, which provides support for
dynamic use of ISP-provided IP

• Packet filtering firewall allows filtering on per
connection or VPN, and allows filtering on IP
basis, source/destination address, service and
protocol; supports up to 255 rules in up to 8
filter sets; pre-configured filter sets allow setup
of basic firewall with a keystroke.
Virtual Private Networking (VPN) supporting
PPTP, ATMP, and IPSec configurable for up to 15
tunnels of any type; tunnels can be configured
open, only during scheduled times (see
scheduled connections) and firewalls can be
applied to tunnels to allow only selective traffic
(see packet filtering).
PPTP Client (PAC) and server (PNS) (RFC 2637)
with 40-bit and 128-bit MPPE encryption
interoperable with Microsoft Windows client
software (Dial-Up Networking) and NT Server
VPN configurations. PAP, CHAP and MSCHAP
authentication supported.
ATMP (Ascend Tunneling Management Protocol,
RFC 2107) client and server support provides fast
tunneling to Ascend routers and Netopia
extensions provide 56-bit DES encryption.
IPSec tunnel mode (RFC 2401), MD5 and SHA-1
authentication algorithms, Manual key
exchange, 56-bit DES encryption.
Management Security: Password-protected with
up to 4 user names and passwords.
