The VSG-1200 V2 is an access server that recognizes new users on a network and re-routes all the different IP settings pre-configured on users' computers. By re-routing settings such as DHCP, DNS, and Proxy, in addition to a static or private IP, subscribers are able to gain access to the Internet without changing any settings. The VSG-1200 V2 also provides SMTP server re-direction, which helps users to send e-mail via the local SMTP server instead of the predetermined default server. In today's business environment, companies increasingly support VPN (Virtual Private Network) to facilitate secure remote access to local networks. The VSG-1200 V2 allows VPN (PPTP, IPsec and L2TP) traffic pass through, allowing telecommuters and other personnel to safely access important or confidential information while traveling. The VSG-1200 V2 allows secure passing of authentication information through SSL encryption for both web-based administration and user login. The VSG-1200 V2 supports both RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service) and proprietary implementation to authenticate, authorize and record the Internet usage of customers. The RADIUS support gives service providers an easy way to manage and maintain a large group of subscribers over the Internet, while the built-in authentication server allows an administrator to control and authenticate a subscriber's access rights based on a login name and password. Internet usage can be easily charged by pre-defined billing plans (by either minute, hour, day or other options). With the PMS interface, the VSG-1200 V2 can easily provide information on the Internet usage of different customers to the existing property management system in a hotel application.
