Have the Internet goe through DSL and not VPN on Cisco 1841?

Unanswered Question
Nov 19th, 2007

Hi, I have a Cisco 1841 with a DSL card. It is running in VPN mode to my head office, can I stop the internet going over the VPN and just use the internet through the DSL port, or does it have to go over the VPN always for the internet?

I have this problem too.

You can have this location connect to the internet without going to the head office.

Posting your current config will help us determine the best approach.

First, we need to take the destination 'any' from the VPN encryption.

You have

access-list 101 permit ip any

It should be

access-list 101 permit ip [destination network]

Next, just configure the NAT for the network:

ip nat inside source route-map DSL interface dialer 1 overload


route-map DSL permit 10

match ip address INSIDE



ip access-list extended INSIDE

deny ip [destination network]

permit ip any

interface f0/0

ip nat inside

interface dialer1

ip nat outside
