I just found out that we are bringing on two more employees, both of whom will be working from their homes (they live in Los Angeles, CA, home office is in Spokane, WA).
We will be putting a local PC and Cisco IP Phone at each of their homes, and traditionally we have been using a PIX 501 and a VPN tunnel to accomplish the connectivity. We have three other employees already set up like this.
Because of the additional employees, I am going to be getting the funding for a new "hub" VPN device here at the main office and I want to do it right and move the current VPN users over to it as well (we are currently using a NetGear VPN router and it has reached its capacity). I was planning on using an ISR router with Cisco IOS Firewall to do the IPSEC VPNs, but I would like to know if the NetPro community has any suggestions on whether or not that would be a good idea or what would be a better solution.
We will need to give the remote users access to multiple subnets here at the main office, and would like their Internet access to bypass the tunnel and leave from their remote devices to cut down on traffic.
I hope I have provided enough information, my mind is reeling from the prospect of my network growing very quickly. :)
Thanks for any and all suggestions you can provide,
