Routix NetCom introduces easy-to-use rules-based packets-level filtering and managment software and improved remote management features and remote scripting. NetCom is an extensible firewall, traffic controller and traffic statistics software for the Microsoft Windows™ NT, XP, 2000 and 2003 operating system. NetCom provides firewall that helps protect network resources from viruses and hackers. NetCom provides a unified management console that simplifies security and access management.
Each rule can be configured with many conditions: connections count, packets direction, NICs, protocols, MAC-addresses, IP-addresses, TCP and UDP ports, time and other conditions.
Each rule can be configured with many actions: packets can be allowed, dropped or sended to the next rule in list. URL filtering supported. Rule can replace MAC and IP addresses, TCP and UDP ports (for example packets can be redirected to the transparent proxy, like SquidNT). Rule can make backward replacements automatically (via NAT-table). Rule can bridge packets between two or more NICs. Rule can redirect packets from one to other NIC. Rule can limit incoming and outgoing bandwidth or prioriterize defined traffic. Rule can execute scripts or external executables on misc events. Each rule has counters of incoming and outgoing traffic. These counters can be resetted automatically with any specified interval. Also these counters can be used as conditions (for example you can block any or specified traffic if counter > N).
NetCom is a software for system administrators, IT-professionals and advanced users. With NetCom you can give full control over local area network (LAN) and over INTERNET connections.
- support for remote scripting (with Microsoft Active Scripting) and provide useful remote administration console;
- support any ethernet/dial-up/xDSL connections to control and managment;
- support any packets direction handling;
- support conditions by connections count;
- support set of protocols (IP, TCP, UDP, ARP, ICMP…);
- support MAC-level (ETHERNET-frames) handling;
- support incoming and outgoing traffic counting and handling;
- support TCP and UDP ports handling;
- support IP addresses handling;
- support TIME-based handling (rule evaluates to TRUE only at specified time);
- support IP addresses handling;
- support HTTP URL filtering;
- support logging to LOG-files;
- automatic counters reset with specified interval (every N hours, N days, N weeks, N month, N years);
- event-based actions executions (every rule can execute many specified scripts or programs, for example for writing counters to database or XML-file). This actions can be executed before counters will be resetted or with specified interval;
- Packets can be allowed, denied or sended to the next rule in list;
- possible to change any packet field (MAC/IP addresses, TCP/UDP ports);
- Integrated NAT;
- Packets can be redirected to any other NIC;
- Bridging between any ethernet interfaces;
- Bandwidth limiting for any type of traffic (static and dynamic shaping);
- QoS (Quality of Service) for any type of traffic;
- With managment console you can monitor realtime network activity;
- With managment console you can connect to many hosts at the same time;
- With managment console you can monitor remote hosts performance (CPU, memory, interrupts…);
- also NetCom have many other features. For more information you can read NetCom manual…
