 Nexland Pro100 Internet Sharing Box - Preamble

As the Internet increasingly proliferates our lives, home users and businesses of all sizes are suddenly realizing that they share similar Internet requirements and security concerns. What with the increasingly complex applications and the downloading of massive files, broadband is shaping into more of a necessity rather than a luxury. Even small businesses and a fair number of homes have multiple computers, and like larger enterprises, shared Internet access and in essence data availability (whether remote or local) safeguarded with tight security is a prime issue.

So what/who holds this integral job? Routers - whether software or hardware. Hardware routers generally allow higher throughput than most software solutions, doesn't require a host computer and is consequently more reliable. Today we take a look at the Pro100, one of several internet security appliances from Nexland. A relatively new player in the field, Nexland's products have been adopted by quite a few large enterprises including Motorola, Bell Canada, Symantec and even Cisco. Nexland's claim to fame is their patent pending ability of allowing encrypted VPN packets over NAT, multi-session IPSec and PPTP. Here's a brief technical overview of the Pro100 :
