* Support of network protocols such as MPLS, L2TP, GRE, GTP and PPP to enable in-line edge positioning at critical network locations as a "link-cleaning" device.
This guide for network support engineers and architects covers a range of VPN technologies, including IPSec, MPLS, L2TP versions 2 and 3, PPTP, and L2F.
Using virtual route forwarding (VRF) for Layer 3 VPN support presents a simplified alternative to tunneled hand-off mechanisms (L2TP), and also enables Internet and applications service providers to offer tiered IP quality of service (QoS) guarantees to their subscribers.
With eight self-contained chapters organized and designed to facilitate rapid and straightforward troubleshooting, Troubleshooting Virtual Private Networks provides detailed information on addressing all common and not-so-common issues associated with IPSec VPNs, MPLS Layer-3 VPNs, any transport over MPLS (AToM)-based Layer-2 VPNs, L2TP Version 3 (L2TPv3)-based Layer-2 VPNs, L2TP Version 2 (L2TPv2) VPNs, PPTP VPNs, and L2F VPNs.
A new Linux-based VPN module of the company's Corporate Server firewall extends the system with support for Layer Two Tunneling Protocol or L2TP, one of the key building blocks for VPNs in the dial access space.
In terms of protocols and technologies, VPNs generally use the Layer 3 IPSec protocol or other Tunneling Protocols (PPTP, L2TP).
Lastly, this product supports multiple features ranging from virtual LAN (VLAN) support, virtual router function, layer2 tunneling protocol (L2TP), IPv6 point-to-point (PPP) protocol, to dynamic host configuration protocol for IPv6 prefix delegation (DHCPv6 PD).
The appliance prevents unauthorized access to the wired network while simultaneously using strong encryption such as IPSec, PPTP or L2TP where needed to secure wireless transmissions between the gateway and client.
Because Ethernet TCP/IP is the most prevalent transport protocol, encryption at the IP layer (IPSEC), data line layer middleware (L2TP) and transport layer (SSL from Netscape) should be considered.
