NATs and firewalls break end-to-end connectivity for networked applications including voice, video conferencing, file sharing, and online gaming. AnyFirewall Server is a carrier-grade STUN server, providing NAT traversal support through any NAT, firewall, proxy, or UPnP.

AnyFirewall Server supports applications on any mobile or fixed device, and supports all NAT types including full cone, address-restricted cone, port restricted cone, and symmetric.

AnyFirewall Server delivers complete TURN server functionality, relaying media traffic in port-blocked Enterprise-level NAT traversal scenarios.

AnyFirewall Server can be deployed with AnyFirewall Engine (client-side ICE/STUN/TURN libraries) and AnyConnect Gateway for an end-to-end firewall and NAT traversal solution, or can be combined with third-party, standards-based products.

AnyFirewall Benefits

Features & Performance

AnyFirewall Server supports several critical features and performance which are required for carrier grade service.
These features include:

  • Multiple domain support/ Multi-tenant support so a single AnyFirewall Server or cluster can be scaled to support many domains and tenants – safely and securely

  • NAT classification (required for customer support and service analysis) provide rich diagnostics – enabling user/customer troubleshooting processes

  • Other STUN server support (required for single NIC and some cloud service environments) provides the flexibility to augment server performance by segregating STUN and TURN services

  • STUN DNS (required to enable connectivity for endpoints behind HTTP proxy) simplifies server deployment and infrastructure configuration

  • Intelligent load-balancing for greater scalability forwards to other STUN/TURN server when loaded (required for quality of service)

  • Lawful interception provides facilities to meet law-enforcement interception request/orders

  • Bandwidth reservation and management exposes parameters and controls for selectively-optimizing server & data-center resources

Clustering and Geographic Load-Balancing

AnyFirewall™ Server can be geographically clustered and load balanced using DNS SRV as a load balancing mechanism. In order to add an AnyFirewall™ Server to the cluster, it is sufficient to add another server machine and allow clients to connect to the new server.

Programmability and Integration

  • Linux, Amazon EC2, GoGrid, Joyent, and Rackspace support

  • Web-based administration

  • Integration with ODBC and Diameter directory services

  • Programmable PHP APIs

  • Optional Eyeball Networks technical support and professional services

Security

Eyeball AnyFirewall™ Server prevents unauthorized access to its resources by requiring a shared username/password mechanism between server and clients. Any allocation of resources on the AnyFirewall™ Server requires authentication.

The authentication mechanism is based on long-term credentials, as defined by STUN. Long term credentials (username and password) are stored in an ODBC-compliant database, or accessed via a third-party authentication service.

WebRTC

Eyeball Networks provides technology required to guarantee WebRTC connectivity. The WebRTC specification specifies the use of STUN, TURN and ICE to support NAT traversal requirements. Eyeball Networks AnyFirewall Technology is fundamental to IETF, XMPP and WebRTC specifications and standards. AnyFirewall technology is patented and standards based.
