WAN Interface:
· Interface to the WAN through any Cable or DSL modem with a 10Base-Ethernet port.
LAN Interface:
· Ethernet 8-port 10Base-T hub with uplink switch to easily connect to another hub.
· Serial Console port Management port for direct console connections to PC (DB9) or Macintosh (mini-DIN8), cables included.
· 10Base-T Ethernet/WAN port can be used as a LAN interface when LAN segmentation is desired.
Advanced Features
· Network Address Translation: (NAT) improves network security by hiding internal IP addresses from the public WAN. NAT also reduces the cost of Internet access by allowing users on your LAN use unregistered or unofficial IP addresses and then to share a single registered IP address when accessing the Internet.
· Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol: DHCP automates IP configuration. As a DHCP client on the Ethernet/WAN port, the R9100 is "plug & play" ready by receiving its configuration information automatically from the ISP. Furthermore, as a DHCP server, devices which are configured as DHCP clients on the LAN can automatically receive IP configuration information from the R9100.
· Exported Services: Allows Web, mail and other hosts on the LAN to be visible to clients on the WAN.
· LAN Segmentation: Separate LAN workgroups in an enterprise environment.
· Modular Architecture: Flexible dual WAN port hardware design, enables easy upgrade of WAN interface module to other currently available or future WAN interface module from Netopia.
Setup and Management Features
· SmartStart: Windows 95/98 or MacOS application allows for automatic, semi-automatic or manual configuration of the router over Ethernet network.
· Smart View: Java monitor tool that displays real time view of current router activity including status lights, most recent connection statistics, and a one-button manual connection to any defined connection profile.
· Advanced Configuration: Menu-driven tools accessible via Telnet, direct console connection or SNMPv1 with MIB-II, interface MIB and Ethernet MIB.
· Firmware: Upgrade firmware in flash memory via a remotely accessible TFTP client or X-Modem transfer using modem or direct cable connection. Configuration retained during upgrades or power failures with battery backup.
· ICMP Ping: To test IP connectivity from router to local or remote site.
· Trace Route: To determine routing path to particular host name or IP address with a maximum setting for hops and time out. Allows for reverse DNS.
· Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP): client to upload and download firmware and configuration files directly to the router.
Security Features
· Secure VPN: Set up encrypted Virtual Private Networks for building intranets and extranets to serve remote users, branch offices and business partners. Integrated PPTP Access Concentrator (PAC) and Network Server (PNS) functionality to provide compatibility with Microsoft Windows 95/98/NT Dial-Up Networking clients and NT Servers. Can replace NT server to provide VPN access to remote users. Also includes ATMP for interoperability with Ascend routers and 56-bit DES Netopia extensions for an efficient, secure VPN connection between remote offices using Netopia routers.
· Network Address Translation (NAT): Hides your LAN behind one Internet IP address by translating IP addresses on a LAN to a single static or dynamically assigned IP address on a WAN.
· Built-in Firewall: Built-in pre-configured firewall to disallow all inbound traffic; NetBIOS filters pre-configured to minimize unnecessary connections.
· Packet Filters: IP & IPX (RIP, RIP2 and SAP) filtering; Filter packets on a per-connection profile basis for source/destination address, service and protocol. Up to 255 rules in up to 8 filter sets.
· Management Security: Password protected with up to 4 user names and passwords, SNMP community string sends current router activity including status lights, most recent connection statistics and a one-button manual connection for any defined connection profile. Running MacOS without Open Transport. Allow Gateway IP access to computers on a LocalTalk network.
Optional AppleTalk Kit
· AURP AppleTalk Tunnelling: Connect remote AppleTalk networks over the Internet or other IP backbone, includes Free Trade Zone, network number re-mapping and hop count reduction, with adjustable tickle timer and update interval
· LocalTalk: interface via Auxiliary port with included RJ11
· PhoneNET: connector computers running MacOS without Open Transport
· LocalTalk-to-Ethernet: routing for Phase II AppleTalk, with Soft-, Hard-and Non-Seeding options
· MacIP server: for dynamic IP address assignment to computers running MacOS without Open Transport
· MacIP gateway: services allows IP access to computers on a LocalTalk network
· SNMP: AppleTalk MIB-I
