12 users, 3 servers, 5 smartphones/tables on the WiFi (existing AP), future VPN server (maybe 5 simultaneous inbound VPN connections at the most with at least one client using a Mac), Cisco Gigabit small business switch
Internet access, VPN connectivity, and firewall (reporting, close/open ports for custom applications as needed)
I was originally going to select an ASA5505-50 user device for the above client. The device is highly regarded on the Internet, offers a command line interface, priced right for the budget and should perform all duties required by the client.
However, the addition of the RV180W to the Cisco product line has me questioning my choice. Could a Cisco small business expert please comment on the two devices and answer a few questions below.
1)Does the RV180W offer a command-line interface?
2)Is the RV180W limited in the number of users it can support without having to purchase additional user licenses?
3)How are firmware/software upgrades handled with the RV180W?
4)What will the client be giving up if they choose the RV180W vs. the ASA5505?
