The Cisco RVL200 4-Port SSL/IPsec VPN Router (Figure 1) features a VPN security engine that creates encrypted Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) tunnels through the Internet. These SSL VPN tunnels enable remote users working at home or on the road to easily and securely connect to the office network through a typical wired or wireless broadband connection. When used with the Cisco RV016 or other Cisco VPN router, an IP Security (IPsec) gateway-to-gateway connection can be established, allowing users in a remote office to connect to the corporate network.
As an essential element of your business, the Cisco RVL200 provides security functions for authentication and encryption. The integrated stateful packet inspection (SPI) firewall helps protect the network from outside threats. Quality of service (QoS) features provide consistent voice and video quality throughout the network. The Cisco RVL200 also features a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Ethernet switch to connect four PCs directly, or to connect additional switches.

Excellent performance, relatively easy setup12/27/2007
I've only setup the SSL clients, which was a breeze. I didn't need the manual, but after setup I did have a question or two. On reading the documentation I found it a little sparse, but it was adequate. This is not a device for a novice. My only real disappointment is in the fact that from the SSL login screen there is no way to change your password, thus the '4' for performance. It seems that for such a security device, an ability for the user to change their password from that given by the administrator would be imperative.
