Table 2

 

If the CP 1543-1 actively establishes a VPN connection to a Security Integrated product via infrastructure with NAT, the data exchange will be without any problems, irrespectively of the firmware used by the partner. By default both parties to a VPN connection are always active, this can be suitably adapted by configuration.
