VPN3000`s counter measure with Netscreen series

Members,

What are advantages and disadvantages of VPN3000 compare with Netscreen series (www.netscreen.com) ?

I only see the following functions of Netscreen that is not available with VPN3000:

1. VLAN

2. Gigabit interfaces

3. Does have firewall function ( a full firewall, since Netscreen is hybrid of Firewall and VPN).

Kindly enlighten me. Any comment or documents would be appreciated.

Best Regards,

Engel

Re: VPN3000`s counter measure with Netscreen series

Netscreen doesn’t use their own VPN client. The third party clients don’t offer a personal firewall like Cisco’s unified client. Netscreen offers no client for Linux, Solaris, Mac’s or handhelds. No TCP NAT transparency (just UDP). No XAUTH, no WINS or DNS assignment support either. Using the VPN concentrator in parallel with a PIX or IOS firewall will give you better functionality, reliability and more control over your VPN connections. I think it’s worth taking a closer look at the two before you make a decision.
