Software Features:

  • Stateful packet filtering firewall or pure router
  • Routing policy per gateway and per-rule for multiple WAN, failover, load balancing
  • Transparent layer 2 firewall
  • Support for IPV6, NAT, BGP
  • Captive portal with MAC filtering, RADIUS support, etc
  • VPN: IPsec, OpenVPN, PPTP
  • Dynamic DNS client
  • DHCP Server and Relay functions
  • PPPoE Server
  • Reporting and monitoring features with real time information

One common barrier to choosing and implementing open source software is the availability of prompt, professional support from knowledgeable individuals.
