NetMAX Newsletter - March 2005
We've recently launched a new ad campaign here at NetMAX, and perhaps you've run across some of the ads in magazines and on websites already. If not, you can just head over to the campaign page of the NetMAX website at poweredbynetmax.com and see for yourself! The campaign is centered on the "Powered By NetMAX" server sticker that appears on new NetMAX servers -- so what does that logo mean to you?
It means we're going to show you how to consolidate IT services, cut overheard costs, and save lots of money by using NetMAX. Curious about how? Drop by the comparison pages of the website, and compare NetMAX VPN Server Suite to other common VPN solutions:
Or compare the NetMAX Firewall to other common firewall solutions:
And if you're running Microsoft Windows Server and Windows machines in your network, check out the advantages of migrating them to NetMAX:
You already know it's hard to beat our normal NetMAX pricing, but what if you're a governmental organization and want to use NetMAX? We've heard this question and now we have the answer... NetMAX GSA Schedule Pricing! If you buy goods and services through General Service Administration, now you can easily get NetMAX products, support, or even custom development time from the expert NetMAX team!
For more information on NetMAX and the GSA schedule, visit the NetMAX website section on GSA Scheduling:
The NetMAX Team was recently asked: how do you connect to XBox live through a NetMAX Firewall?
First, you have to make input and output rules to allow traffic through ports 53,88, and 3074 on both the LAN (Eth?) and WAN (Eth?) interfaces. Here's the specific rule settings:
Rule type: INPUT
Rule type: OUTPUT
Set your XBox configuration on "Automatic" and it will get the connection setting for you without further tinkering. You’ll be playing online in no time!
For more details on this, visit the NetMAX User Forum.
