N+I 1999: iVasion Unveils Windows 2000 VPN Interoperability

When the opt-delayed Microsoft Windows 2000 Server ships, hopefully in 2000, iVasion, a newly formed division of RouterWare, will have the software tools to support VPNs on the new operating system. The Newport Beach, CA-based company will demonstrate its WinVPN client solution with Microsoft's Windows 2000 VPN server technology at its Networld+Interop booth # 8707.

Microsoft Corp. (Redmond, WA) invited iVasion to participate in an interoperability showcase for the VPN technology in its upcoming Windows 2000 release. Along with 3Com Corp. (Santa Clara, CA), IBM (Armonk, NY), Cisco Systems (San Jose, CA), and Lucent Technologies (Murray Hill, NJ), iVasion will demonstrate secure L2TP over IPSec connections using the latest in VPN standards.

Users visiting iVasion at will see live video transmitted from the Microsoft booth over an L2TP tunnel using IPSec to secure the connection. iVasion was among the first to bring L2TP support to Windows. By leveraging Microsoft's Dial-Up Networking the client is compatible and easy to support.

The iVasion client supports PPTP, L2TP and L2TP over IPSec for systems running Windows 95, 98, or NT 4.0. The beta version of iVasion's WinVPN Client 2.0 will offer enhanced standards support and new features including support for multiple, simultaneous tunnels, and even nested tunnels.
