Gigabit Wired Bridge VPN Router Now Available
The popular EIGR series of high-speed routers has been expanded to
include a wired bridge VPN model which facilitates easier secure remote
access, especially for BACnet systems without the need to setup any
The EIGR-VB high-speed router links two 10/100/1000 Mbps Internet
Protocol (IPv4) networks—passing appropriate traffic while blocking all
other traffic. One network is the local-area-network (LAN); the other
is the wide-area-network (WAN). The built-in stateful firewall passes
communication initiated on the LAN-side while blocking WAN-side
initiated communication. With Port Address Translation (PAT), LAN-side
clients can access the Internet. Network Address Translation (NAT)
allows a one-to-one translation between LAN-side and WAN-side devices.
With Port Forwarding, LAN-side devices can be accessed from the
Internet. The EIGR-VB incorporates a four-port Ethernet switch for
multiple LAN-side connections. An external Ethernet-based modem—cable
or DSL—can be used to connect to the Internet. DSL modems connect via
the PPPoE protocol.
