1. SCALABILITY AWindows 2003 server
based router is as upgradable and expandable as any standard PC. Additional memory,
more powerful processors, additional interfaces and connection devices can be added
at any time. Anything available to a normal PC is available to a Windows router using
standard PC pricing and upgrade techniques.
2. GRAPHICAL INTERFACE The Windows
2003 router is built using standard Windows technologies and interfaces. Setup
and customization is all point and click.
FUNCTIONALITY The Windows 2003 router can handle as complicated a routing
solution as you have to offer. It can route for as many subnets as you can add
interfaces for (the router supports USB and serial devices as well as PCI). It
can assign DHCP leases for every subnet, and pull duty as a DNS server. Built
in NAT can be implemented, or the router can be used as an addition to a major
routing infrastructure supporting such routing protocols as OSPF and RIP.
It can even be configured to accept incoming dial up, or VPN connections.
The Windows 2003 router has built in NAT protecting your internal network
systems, and a built in Microsoft firewall that can be activated. Packet filters
and the ability to block ports enhance security. Third party packet sniffing and port
monitoring utilities available from the Network Decisions free
tools site at no extra charge. The Windows router can
be upgraded to an ISA** routing and server solution.
PUBLISHING The Windows 2003 RRAS NAT based routing solution can pull
duty as a server, or allow access to any server application on your internal network.
With port forwarding, your email, web, and game servers can be made as available as
you need them to be.
Compare the Windows 2003 based routing solution to other professional offerings
and see the value. The Windows 2003 not only routes, it is a fully functional
version of Windows2003 Server with 5 cals. Memory and interface upgrades cost no more
than they would with and average PC. Moving to a Microsoft routing solution removes
the need to hire a separate name-branded router specialist.

server solution, but adds the following services as well: Installs in cache,
firewall, or integrated mode. Caching of non-dynamic content requests leaving
and entering your network frees up your bandwidth. Secure web publishing (outside
