These features along with a firmware backup function provide and maintain maximum network performance and security.

VPN Performance

For optimal VPN configuration, the DFL-800 has both an integrated VPN Client and Server to support almost any required VPN policy. This high-end appliance has a hardware VPN engine to support and manage up to 300 VPN connections. The DFL-800 can support IPSec, PPTP, and L2TP protocols in Client/Server mode and can handle pass-through traffic as well. Advanced VPN configuration options include: DES/3DES/AES/Twofish/Blowfish/CAST-128 encryption, Manual or IKE/ISAKMP key management, Quick/Main/Aggressive Negotiation modes, and VPN authentication support using either an external RADIUS server or the internal 500-user database.

Configurable User Interface

The DFL-800 can be configured via the D-Link Web-based interface and monitored using the Command Line Interface (CLI). These configuration options can be managed through Admin, Read/Write, or Read-Only administrator rights. With these access management levels, any authorized user can easily configure or access the administrative functions of the DFL-800.

With businesses becoming increasingly network-dependent, the need to invest in a reliable security solution is crucial.
