The DrayTek Vigor 2900 includes full packet-level firewall facilities, not just the inherrent 'NAT' security and
port-blocking of other routers. This includes stateful packet inspection. The DrayTek 2900 also employs keep-state
packet recording; put simply, this means that when a packet is sent out, a reciprocal record is kept to allow a packet
coming back in the opposite direction, but a default 'deny' policy means that any packet arriving which appears
unsolicited won't get through. The DrayTek Vigor 2900 series also features automatic protection from Dos / DDos (Denial
of Service / Distributed Denial of Service) attacks and IP anti-spoofing. User-definable filters also allow you to add
additional protection to your connection. For added confidence, potential or foiled attacks are logged and can be
reported via the router's syslog facility or emailed to you by the router.
Virtual LAN (VLAN) & Bandwidth Throttling
The DrayTek Vigor 2900s VLAN facility enables you to segment each of the router's four Ethernet ports, so that each is
a separate virtual LAN. You can create VLAN groups which include or exclude any of the ports so that groups,
departments and companies can communicate with each other, or not. For example, two companies could share the same
broadband feed, without having access to each other's networks. The DrayTek Vigor 2900's allow each of the four
10/100BaseT Ethernet ports to be limited to a maximum throughput (RX and RX selectable). e.g. Port 1 could be set to
provide max 256Kb/s to prevent individual users, or LAN branches from consuming too much of your broadband

tunnels to remote locations; either single teleworkers or remote networks / offices. The VPNs use induststry standard
protocols including IPSec, PPTP and with high level encryption including 3DES, AES and MPPE. Cross compatibility with

party VPN vendor's products, including Cisco Pix, Nokia, Sonicwall, Checkpoint, ZyWall and Watchguard.
