We would like to have a VPN Tunnel with our HQ, can we have Router termninating VPN Tunnel and DSL connection. Physical two internet connection ( both ethernet connection from different ISP )

All traffic to HQ should pass via VPN Tunnel and all internet traffic should pass via DSL.

Hello Amin,

Hello Amin,

this is possible the most important thing is to use an extended ACL to define what has to be processed NAT where you first deny traffic to the HQ:

access-list 151 deny ip

access-list 151 permit ip any

the ACL can be invoked by a route-map that can be used in the NAT command.

Similar ACLs will define what has to go encrypted on the VPN tunnel:

access-list 155 permit ip

You can even use a single physical link for this.

Hope to help
