Our business currently uses a Netgear ProSafe VPN Firewall SRX5308.  We do not use the VPN aspect of it (although I have considered it).  We do, however, use a lot of port forwarding to different computers/servers.  Around 20.

 

We are looking to replace this unit, and am wondering what might be the best option in TP-Link.  I am thinking the TL-ER6020 (we only have about 30 computers total).

 

I am wondering how many virtual servers are allowed on these newer routers.  I am currently testing an older TP link and it maxed out at 16 (I had to limit RDP sessions for a day or two)

 

Thanks for any assistance!  

 

Kind regards,

 

K2

Dear @K_2,

 

I am wondering how many virtual servers are allowed on these newer routers. 

 

The TL-ER6020 V1/V2 supports to create 32 virtual server items.

@Fae 

 

Thank you for the information.  Is this now standard with most of the routers that TP-LINK carries (the one I am testing is older and maxes out at 16 VPNs).

 

I find it interesting that I am unablet to locate this information in the doucmentation.  I am researching a replacement and have it narrowed down to one of the TP-Link units.

 

kind regards,

K2

For the TP-Link VPN routers, the new version support 32(or more) virtual servers. 

While Load balance router TL-R470T+/TL-R480T+ has only 16.

@Fae 

 

Thank you so much for the information.  The one I am testing is a load-balancing router (old one at that).  It was one I had laying around at home.

 

We ordered a TL-ER6120.  It looks like a perfect replacement for the Netgear ProSafe.

 

Again, thanks for the info!

 

Kind Regards,

K2
