When setting up a 857 Router I set up the vpn server as unnumbered on Vlan1.

Can anyone explain the difference between selecting this option compared to "unnumbered to new loopback interface"?

Hi Chris

One of the reason behind this is to preserve public ip address been wasted for different purpose.

I hope the same ip been used for some other purpose too except terminating the VPN connections...

If its not used for some other purpose then i dont think its good to have ununumbered on the interface to terminate the vpn connections.
