We have a simple HQ to Branch scenario and are wondering what routers to buy.
There is 1 HQ with about 10users and 2 servers (1 SQL and 1 Terminal Server)
There are 2 branch offices (each with about 5 users) that will need to establish a VPN tunnel back to HQ to access SQL (via an application) and the Terminal Server.
All sites have DSL and a static IP
I have been able to implement a site-to-site GRE tunnel on 2 Cisco 831's (for testing purposes), which works well.
Now that I'm comfortable with the setup I'd like to know what current hardware to purchase.
Would 3 Cisco 851's (1 at each location) with 2 GRE Tunnels (1 to each site) be accectable or...
Should we be looking at a 2901 at HQ and 871's at the Branch's using something DMVPN (dynamic branch to branch VPN will not be required)
Our budget is not that large, so we prefer the 851's, just don't want to limit ourselves in the future. I see only a max of 5 branch office's in the next 5-7 years.
