Introduction

Linksys USB VPN and Firewall Adapter

Linksys USB VPN and Firewall Adapter
Summary Specialized miniature version of Linksys' BEFSX41 router disguised as a USB - Ethernet adapter. Intended to allow mobile clients tunnel to remote IPsec gateway
Update None
Pros • Easy to install
• Inexpensive compared to IPsec client software
Cons • Another thing to carry on the road
• Won't work with all IPsec gateways
• Windows-only

When I first read the USBVPN1's product description, I at first thought that the folks at Linksys had lost it. But midway through writing a somewhat snarky news item about the USB VPN & Firewall Adapter, the light dawned and I realized what Linksys was up to - making an inexpensive portable mate for their extremely popular BEFVP41 and BEFSX41 VPN endpoint routers.

After my short time with the product, I think they've achieved their goal, but the results may not suit everyone's needs.
