Tunnel Interfaces and Crypto Maps

Unanswered Question

I am not clear what you are really asking here. What do you mean by a tunnel interface VPN?

If the router already has crypto maps are the maps for Remote Access VPNs or for Site to Site VPN?

In general I believe that the answer is that a router can support multiple types of VPN connections including Site to Site and Remote Access and can support VPN connections to multiple remote locations.

If this has not been an adequate answer to your question then please clarify the question so that we can do better.




Thank you for your quick reply.

Sorry if I wasn't clear I would like to configure 'Virtal Tunnel Interfaces' on a router already configured with Crytpo Maps, these Crypto Maps are providing Site to Site VPN not Remote Access.

I just wanted to be clear that they would run together without a problem before I spend time on a new design.

Many Thanks,

It is now much more clear. I do not have much experience with Virtual Tunnel Interfaces and am not in a position to say whether they would work well with established crypto map tunnels or not.
