Compatible Systems Corp. has three new virtual private net- work access servers designed to cut long-distance bills for large and small companies.
The additions to the company's IntraPort VPN Access line--IntraPort 2, IntraPort 2+, and IntraPort Enter- prise--are aimed at companies look- ing to provide remote users with VPN access. Businesses that still use dial-up remote access to reach net- works could save as much as 90% on those long-distance costs, says Matt McConnell, president and CEO of Compatihle Systems. That is what the city of San Jose, Calif. has done with a Compatible systems access server, says Charlie Felix, systems and network coordi- nation supervisor for the city, which plans to upgrade an existing IntraPort access server to IntraPort 2. "We want to make sure [our users] can all gain access to the servers when necessary," Felix says.
The servers support site-to-site and individual client remote access on Windows 95, 98, and NT, as well as Mac OS and Linux, McConnell says. IntraPort 2 and IntraPort 2+ are aimed at small to midsize busi- nesses, with IntraPort 2 supporting up to 64 simultaneous users and IntraPort 2+ supporting up to 200. IntraPort Enterprise supports up to 2,000 simultaneous users. IntraPort 2 can configure up to 16 tunnels for LAN-to-LAN communication, IntraPort 2+ can configure 32 tunnels, and IntraPort Enterprise 64 tunnels. The access servers support the IPSec tunneling protocol for IPX and TCP/IP.
The servers will boost perfor- mance at sites that support both IP and IPX, says Jeff Wilson, director of access programs at market research firm Infonetics. "Performance is lost when businesses have to capsulate IPX to IP," he says.
IntraPort 2 and IntraPort 2+ are available now. IntraPort 2 is priced at $3,995, and IntraPort 2+ is $9,995. IntraPort Enterprise will be available by September at $35,000
