I am trying to make logical Interfaces on my Cisco 2811 Ethernet WAN port,


I will use two internet connections on this port,, both connections will be terminating on a layer 2 switch, D-Link, and the switch will be connected to the Router,


Is it possible?????


The router asks me to first make this port for ISL or 802.1q....

Hello,


Yes it is possible to do this.

what i will suggest is that u can create a trunk between router and the the D-link switch. Please revert for any more clarification. Also put the logs in the next post, if u face any more issues

You need a switch with 802.1q VLAN support, it's quite possible the one you have doesn't do that, so get a cisco a linksys switch.

Should I be able to configure Soft IPsec VPN on the router????


and the users will communicate with 2 live IPs,, I mean,, some users will use one , and the others will use the second one,,,


As well, I want to configure the site-to-Site VPN...


The main Objective is to use only one ethernet WAN Port...

You can do that.


If you have no experience in configuring routers, VPN etc, I recommend you hire a certified professional for safe results without business-affecting mistakes.
