Standalone Program SAProuter
SAProuter is a standalone program that protects your SAP network against unauthorized access.
SAProuter is a proxy in a network connection between SAP systems, or between SAP systems and external networks. SAProuter acts as an extra firewall to the existing firewall (port filter). It is usually installed directly on the firewall host.
The SAProuter port serves as a gateway, through which connections to your firewall-protected system can be opened. You can specify the connections you want to allow in a route permission table.
Note that installing SAProuter without the use of a firewall does not protect your network against access from external networks. You must ensure that all incoming SAP connections can be made secure by SAProuter.
