Re: Does Cisco make a SSL VPN router, with a "simple" GUI config?

Posts: n/a
Just an update - I have ordered one Sonicwall TZ100W.

I will try to configure it at one site (my home) first, replacing one
of the Draytek 2900 routers. I found some old web review of the TZ100
where the reviewer got it talking via the VPN (IPSEC I think) to a
Draytek router, so this box might even work without me having to
change the other one as well

The Fortigate product looks a lot more feature-packed and faster but I
don't think we need the performance. Everything we are doing is
limited by the two ADSL speeds. We are not doing any LAN firewall

Many thanks for all your input.
