Product Overview

NeoRouter is the ideal Remote Access and VPN solution for small businesses and home. It helps you manage and connect to all your computers from anywhere. It gracefully integrates Remote Access, File Sharing, Virtual Private Network, User and Access Management.

Many small businesses or homes have high-speed internet and multiple computers, and users are facing challenges like remote access, directory management and network security. To solve similar problems at large enterprises, skilled administrators can deploy very expensive and complex tools like VPN, domain controller and corporate firewall. But small business or home users do not have the right tools that fit their needs.

Our mission is to provide low-cost zero-configuration networking solutions for small businesses and homes. This is why we have built NeoRouter.


Feature Description
Cross platform Support Windows, Mac OSX, FreeBSD, Android, Linux (all major distros) and router firmwares (tomato and openwrt).
Roaming Profile You can sign in from any computer using the same account and your profile (including the computer list and your preference) will roam with you.
P2P NeoRouter can setup direct peer-to-peer (P2P) connection between computers. When direct P2P connection is impossible (e.g. your computer is behind a corporate firewall), NeoRouter relays the network traffic through your own router, while other VPN products relay through a central server geologically located far away and shared by thousands of other users.
High portability You can run NeoRouter portable client from a USB drive without installation. This feature is especially useful if you are using a computer that you do not have the privileges to setup new software, e.g. in a library or hotel.
Unattended servers NeoRouter runs as a system service (daemon) and will automatically reconnect after reboot.
Add-ons Add-ons extend NeoRouter and let you perform additional tasks over the virtual network.
Proxy Proxy support allows you access your virtual network behind proxy servers that support HTTP Proxy, SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 protocols.
Remote Wakeup You can put your computer to standby mode to conserve electricity and NeoRouter can wake up the computer when you actually use it.
Reliability NeoRouter does not rely on a central server for connectivity, so you do not need to worry about the unexpected server maintenance and downtime.
Network Bridge You can either bridge the NeoRouter virtual network with physical networks or create multiple site-to-site VPN.
Access control* You can grant or deny user's accesses to a computer or a service/port individually. For example, you can prevent your client Bob from accessing your internal file server even though they are on the same virtual LAN.
Packet Filtering* You can filter out specified packets, such as broadcast, multicast and non-ipv4 packets. This can reduce a lot of useless traffic over the VLAN and improve the connection performance.
User Access Auditing* You can user access activities, such as sign in, sign out and so on.
Customization You can personalize the user interface with your native language and favorite skin.
Branding* Business users can integrate the company's logo and customize the banner.
* Professional Edition only
