IPSEC VPN on Metro-E connection

Answered Question
Oct 23rd, 2008

Hi all,

I have a quick question. Is it possible to run L2L IPSEC VPN via a Metro-E connection? It doesn't make sense to do something like that via Metro-E but this connection is with a partner therefore on both ends, firewalls are in place. WIth port forwading, NATting, etc,etc, I ran into problems to provide additional services because of that. I am hoping a L2L IPSEC VPN on both ends will solve this problem once and for all. The only question is to be sure in fact a Metro-E is just a ethernet connection and really no difference from setting up a L2L IPSEC VPN via the internet.

Thank you for your help.

I have this problem too.

Eric,

Yes, L2L IPSEC VPN Tunnel Over Metro-E connection should work just fine. You might run into processing overhead and throughput issues on the VPN Server but other than that it should be fine.
