    The Gigaset Router provides Internet access to multiple users by sharing a single-user account (depending on your Internet Service Provider). The Gigaset Router features a WAN interface that allows you to connect either a DSL or cable modem. The Gigaset Router provides extensive firewall protection and Virtual Private Network (VPN) services.

  • Page 5: Applications

    Virtual Server If you have a static IP address, you can set up the Gigaset Router to act as a virtual host for network address translation. Remote users access various services at your site using the static IP address. Then, depending on the requested service (or port number), the Gigaset Router routes the request to the appropriate server (at an internal network IP address).

  • Page 6: Trademarks

    Security The Gigaset Router supports security features that deny Internet access to specified users, or drop requests for specific services.
