Does this router allow sharing files, printer, etc.?

By mobotech ·
When I read the specs and description of this router, it seems to only talk about internet firewalls and VPN related features and nothing about sharing files, and printers.

Does it do that as well? I'm confused.

Routers

don't have anything to do with sharing files and printers. If your network workstations and/or server are configured properly, then you can share files and printers all day, whether you have a BEFSX41 on your network or something else. That's why it's not mentioned in the specs.

But if you're trying to share ACROSS the router, meaning you'll have clients on either side of the router, from the public internet to the inside of the router, or from site to site, then that's a totally different ballgame.

But if you are just concerned about a LAN inside of the router sharing amongst themselves, using the BEFSX41 for internet access, then the BEFSX41 will do you just fine.
