Overview

Draytek Vigor 2960 Dual-WAN Router Firewall

V2960-K
Loading

The Vigor 2960 is a high-performance dual-Gigabit WAN firewall. The two dedicated Gigabit WAN ports can provide load balancing or WAN failover. Based on a new DrayTek OS platform, the Vigor 2960 provides high performance with DrayTek's traditional ease of use and comprehensive features set. Extensive QoS, VLAN Web Content filtering features help keep your network efficiency and online productivity high.

VPN

As a VPN endpoint/concentrator, the Vigor 2960 will support up to 200 simultaneous teleworker or LAN-to-LAN VPNs with a VPN throughput of up to 500Mb/s dependant on protocol, thanks to its hardware-based VPN co-processor. VPN security includes certificate, MOTP or token/PSK based access and key-hash authentication to ensure maximum security.

High Availability

For even greater resilience, the Vigor2960 provides High Availability (HA). The CARP protocol (equivalent to VRRP or HSRP) lets you set up a master and secondary Vigor2960 whereby in the event of the master unit failing, the secondary unit can seamlessly and automatically switch over. This can remove the possibility of a single point of failure within your routers. Additionally, multiple active Vigor2960's can provide reciprocal routing backup to other active Vigor2960s.

SSL VPN

For ease of remote access, the Vigor 2960 can provide up to 50 simultaneous SSL VPN tunnels or web-proxy links. SSL Web-Proxy makes remote access to your network possible from virtually anywhere without the inconvenience or compatibility issues of installing a VPN client. As SSL is a standard Internet protocol (used for web sites) SSL VPNs are also resilient to difficulties in creating tunnels through guest networks (web cafes, hotels etc.) where traditional IPSec/PPTP tunnels can often have difficulties. SSL encryption is strong too, using 128bit DES/3DES or AES. Using MoTP, your teleworker passwords are strong and realtime; a password is generated in real-time by your mobile phone (iphone, Android etc.) which can be used once only, and only at the time its generated.

The Vigor 2960 supports up to 50 DrayTek SSL VPN tunnel connections. These are encrypted tunnels linking your teleworkers or remote DrayTek Vigor routers back to your main office using SSL/TLS technology - the same encryption that you use for secure web sites such as your bank. Site to site VPN tunnels can connect branch offices to a main office, with DrayTek SSL VPN encryption securing the connection between the two offices, a TLS encrypted HTTPS tunnel which can be more secure than PPTP, and easier to configure than an IPsec VPN tunnel. Teleworkers can easily create a secure DrayTek SSL VPN tunnel to the DrayTek Vigor 2960 using the DrayTek Smart VPN Client app. DrayTek Smart VPN Client is free and supports Windows OS, macOS, Apple iOS (iPad, iPhone) and Android. You can learn more about the DrayTek Smart VPN Client here. DrayTek SSL VPN is simple to configure, providing a more secure alternative to the now obsolete Point to Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP VPN); which has known weaknesses and is now considered to be insecure. Setup is similar to a PPTP VPN tunnel in that it authenticates with an SSL VPN Username and Password.

VPN Trunking

VPN Trunking is the facility to create more than one VPN tunnel, over a second Wan CONNECTION, to the same remote location in order to provide either increased bandwidth between the two sites (load balancing) or resilience (failover) in the event that one tunnel/connection is interrupted. The Vigor 2960 supports both Failover and Load Balancing modes for VPN Trunks.

The Vigor 2960 already supports load balancing to the Internet using its dual-WAN ports. What VPN trunking does is enables a single virtual tunnel to be created across both WAN connections to the same remote location creating a single virtual tunnel, recombining the tunnel at the other end. As far as the traffic and LAN devices/clients are concerned, there is just a single tunnel, with increased bandwidth.

Loading

In the diagram above, you can see a single virtual tunnel as far as the LAN at each end is concerned. Within the router, two WAN connections are being used with each router, across which the VPN tunnel can be spread, increasing total capacity and/or redundancy (for failover).
