Hi

I am looking at getting a Netgear router i.e. the FVs114 or FVS336G.  Can someone tell me if when you create a vpn for a remote users can you define in the policy foir each which remote network they can access?  e.g. If I had 2 networks on 2 seperate switches that are both connected to this router and therefore sharing an internet connection, I can define in the VPN policy for each individual user which network they can get to?

Thanks for your help!

You can, but the netgear vpn settings are very difficult to get working properly I would go with somthing like a pix 501 or an asa 5505. They will cost a little more but I assure you the headaches it will save you are worth it.

I disagree with Dawilliams, Netgear ProSafe Routers are , on the shole, very easy to build VPN's with.  I would NOT suggest a FVS114 as it IS a pain the rear, but a FVS338 would be a great fit.  You can create policies using whatever remote segment you want as long as ther is a route to the segment from the router (this is the case with any VPN).  I build VPS for my users everyday, as we do them on an 'as needed' basis, andit typically takes me 2 minutes tops.
