Hi,


Can anyone please tell me if it is possible to setup a L2L tunnel over TCP between two PIX 515E firewalls?

Praveen,


Not possible for Lan to Lan IPSEC Tunnels on the Pix.


You could use a feature called "Ipsec Over TCP" but this is for only for VPN Clients.


If you dont mind, could you share the reason for this type of requirement. Thanks!


I hope it helps.

Arul,


Thank you very much for the reply. The reason is, we have a tunnel running to one of our client sites and due to internet conjestion and/or some routing issues between SPs there is a lot of packet loss happening and the end users are suffering with their appliations. But I assume the packet loss should be taken care by TCP Layer between the hosts.


I am not really sure if tunnel over TCP makes sense but just wanted to check.

Praveen
