Does Linksys have a product for me?

    I am looking for a simple firewall interface to serve my somewhat complex setup.

    I've got an internal LAN and a couple web servers with a few different public IPs on them. We would like to replace our current firewall. I need to be able to have these web server accessible only on specific ports, I would also need to be able to connect to them via local lan if possible. Is there a product that can do that? Linksys support told me that the RV082 but I don't know whether they understood my question completely.

    I was also looking at the RVS4000 because gigabit would be a future requirement however I haven't heard very many good things about this product.

    Thanks all!

    For one you would are good to question supports advice. As far at the firewall goes, personally i would go with the pix or a small netscreen which gives you the granularity you are after. I have yet to play with either of those two linksys products however if you just need accessablitiy via port forwarding and a simply firewall feature set then just about any linksys router will work. If you are wanting those for the dual wan ports, i would sit tight for a little while at they seem to have a few issues still (thats per the posts i have read).

    I've been very pleased with the RV082/016 models for a couple of years...great products. The RVS is very new, and may still have some issues...I've not gotten hands on with that product yet, but I have a large fleet of the RV0 series out there..good stuff.

    be careful of the SSL routers. i have a RVL200. it allows for 5 SSL VPN connections, but VPN tunnels are limited due to memory requirements of the SSL feature so IPSEC has only 1 available tunnel.

    the rest of the features of this router however are excellent.

    As of right now, Toxic is the only one with the RVL200, until others buy :(

    Not sure if there's much traffic about this as of yet...

    I have one. It seems like the .14 firmware fixed the failure to passthrough IPSec eventhough that wasn't on their published fix list.

    Also it appears the SSL VPN is capped at 64K each for 5 connections which might be due to the RVL200's CPU... just a guess. It might be nice to maybe allow two connections at 160K. Hopefully the bandwidth cap will be removed since NetGear tech support claims their SSL VPN is not capped.
