The FB6402 is designed to provide firewalling, typically for hosted servers in a data centre. It supports 8192 VLANs in total and each can be separately firewalls. Basic BGP is included primarily for announcing routes for its subnets. VRRP is supports so a dual box configuration can be supported allowing redundancy.
Full features for one price, no per session licencing or other extra costs.
One year warranty on hardware against any manufacturing defect. Normal working hours / courier replacement. Recommended that two units are used together to provide hardware redundancy. On-going maintenance contracts available for extended hardware support beyond one year.
1U, dual AC 120/240V inlets (monitored), 2 internal fans (monitored), approx 30W total power consumption.
Multi-position 19" rack mount ears, with variation for hanging mount in shallow depth telco racks.
Power at rear, ethernet ports at front.
Free of charge, beta and released software. Internal flash holds last 10 versions with automatic fallback on crash/watchdog.
Reboot or software upgrade with clean shutdown of Firewall, BGP, VRRP, etc, for minimal disruption. Boot time under 1 second.
UK based s/w support team - email and irc support during office hours.
Configuration defined by an XML document according to a published XSD schema. The configuration may be uploaded and downloaded by HTTP (e.g using curl). In addition the web interface contains an interactive configuration editor as does the command line interface.
Configuration changes are applied as seamlessly as possible when loaded without the need to re-boot.
The command line provides a number of commands to provide viewing of BGP, OSPF, and Firewall data, as well as clearing BGP sessions and clearing Firewall tunnels and sessions. Includes tab completion and interactive help text.
The command line is available via telnet and ssh and serial connection.
Two physical copper gigabit ethernet ports allowing 4096 VLANs on each. 10 independent routing tables which can be used with BGP and Firewall (ideal for management LAN, segregating customer traffic, walled garden and credit control LAN). Each port/VLAN can be attached to a specific routing table.
Access lists of telnet, ssh, tftp, web, snmp. These can also be attached to an independent routing table for specific port/VLANs.
Syslog to external server with various levels of debugging data available. Logs also available live via command line interface.
Easy to set up firewalling rules. Note, this is IP level firewalling and not virus scanning or web page filtering or proxying.
Limited BGP is provided to allow subnets to be announced.
Not yet fully implemented.
SNMP (read only) support for a number of functions including interface stats for each port/VLAN in use.
Simple NTP client to set clock for accurate logging with fallback via list of configured servers.
DHCP client mode available, multiple instances. Also RA client for IPv6 addressing.
RA server for passive IPv6 adress allocation to LAN.
IPv4 VRRP2 and IPv4/6 VRRP3 server.
