Helo Everyone,

On a site to site VPN tunnel using a 5505 at each site can someone tell me what the maximum througput will be? I see that the 5505 can do 150Mbps on pure firewall throughput but not sure if tha wuld be the same for a VPN tunnel.

Thanks in advance! All replies rated

I think I just found it at 100Mbps for maximum 3DES throughput. Can anyone confirm and if this is "real world"?

I can not comment on the 5505, but I can say I have done some pretty exhaustive testing on the 5510 and while the chart referenced on the data sheet says, 170Mbps of 3DES VPn traffic, I found that I can only get 85Mbps through a 5510. The throughput numbers on the data sheet are total throughput taking into consideration bidirectional traffic.
