Gigabit VPN Router


The D-Link®

DSR-250 VPN Router is a cost-effective, high performance solution for securing a small business network. Optimal network security is provided via features such as virtual private network (VPN) tunnels, IP Security (IPSec), Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP), Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP), and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Empower your road warriors with clientless remote access anywhere and anytime using SSL VPN tunnels.

Robust VPN Features
A fully featured virtual private network (VPN) provides your mobile workers and branch offices with a secure link to your network. The DSR-250 is capable of simultaneously managing 5 Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN tunnels, empowering your mobile users by providing remote access to a central corporate network. Site-to-site VPN tunnels use IP Security (IPSec) Protocol, Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP), or Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) to facilitate branch office connectivity through encrypted virtual links. The DSR-250 supports up to 25 simultaneous VPN tunnels.
