Internet servers can be computer devices specialized for networking. The devices such as routers which act as internet servers can act as web, file, firewall, and mail server applications.
Easy to install and maintain
The routers available from DrayTek have been manufactured to provide file loading and immediate functionality without complex technical support if the administrator has experience with routers.
Although not often referred to in this capacity, routers are self contained systems which are connected to the home or office network to forward packets. Simply put - routers which provide access to public networks fall in the category of internet servers. The local area network is connected to the router which forwards the IP packets to the wide area network ports.
How does it work?
Routers assess the incoming packets and decide how to send them and where to. Factors such as traffic, network loading, and cost are all taken into consideration. Many routers are only used in the capacity of directing traffic. The devices include firewalls to protect the network against intrusion attempts. In larger organizations the routers available from DrayTek are also utilized in the capacity of network division into subnets to ensure traffic balancing and network security_
