Site-to-Site and Remote Access VPNs

Unanswered Question

One of my users wants to be able to open two different applications remotely at the same time. The applications come from two different companies. The only way for her to do this is to be able to open two Cisco VPN clients at the same time. I know it is not possible to open two Cisco VPN clients at the same time on the same computer since the profiles are for two different companies. Is there a way that this user can connect to two companies remotely at the same time? How about setting up Site-to-Site VPN to one company and use VPN client to connect to another company? We have an ASA 5550.


Thanks.

Hi Diane, your have proposed your own solution. You can VPN client to one company but would probably need split tunnel in order to be able to have the L2L accessibility to the other company if you are the initiator, I believe it would be best to do two different L2L tunnels with simple source/destination and specific tcp/udp ports required. Two L2L would be a much easier approach, thats my opinion.

Thanks for your prompt response.


What is required to have L2L setup? We have ASA 5550. What would the other end need to have? Do they need to have Cisco PIX, VPN Concentrator, ASA, Cisco router, etc.?


Thanks.

What is required is any end device that supports Ipsec standard if non-cisco, for cisco any ASA/PIX, Cisco VPN concentrator, or IOS router with at least

a k9 image will be capable of IPsec tunnels.



Go to this page and reference Site to Site VPN (L2L) with ASA, or ASA to Router sections mid page down.

Additional reference Ipsec standards, will definately help when building Ipsec tunnels.

Thanks very much for your prompt response and information. Is it possible to run both Site-to-Site and Remote Access VPN on the same ASA 5550? Thanks.
