VPN (Virtual Private Network) Connection
The ZyWALL 2 supports ICSA certified IPSec VPN suitable for remote
site to central server deployment. Data encryption over the Internet
ensures secure transmission between two sites, eliminating the necessity
for expensive leased lines, and enabling global interconnectivity
at a minimal expense.
The ICSA Firewall certified ZyWALL 2 provides robust firewall protection
and reliable security. Based on Stateful Packet Inspection and Denial
of Service (DoS) technology, it provides the first line of defense
against hackers, network intruders, and other hazardous threats.
Redirection for Broadband BackupConnection*
The ZyWALL 2 offers users increased reliability by supporting Fail-Over
and Fail-Back technology. Fail-Over and Fail-Back technology forward
WAN port traffic to backup ISDN or Analog modems in the event of
WAN port connection failure. Once WAN port connections are reestablished,
traffic automatically returns. An additional gateway may also be
connected to the ZyWALL 2 to ensure availability of the Internet
through a secondary local network. The ZyWALL 2 backup features
increase reliability while decreasing device maintenance, IT consulting
costs, and daily operation losses.
Internet Access Sharing
The ZyWALL 2 is equipped with a four-port 10/100 Ethernet switch,
allowing multiple users to share one broadband Internet connection
without the additional costs associated with external switches or
