LAN to LAN Tunnel IPSEC VPN

We have a number of remote 3550 switches trunked back to a 4500 running over a 3rd party layer 2 network. If we wanted to ensure the data was secure what options are there to encrypt/tunnel or VPN multiple remote sitespreferably using existing kit?

Re: LAN to LAN Tunnel IPSEC VPN

with the cat4500 you can use the 'access gateway module' http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps663/products_data_sheet09186a008033a388.html, to provide ipsec services.

with the 3550 Metro and EMI you should be able to multi-VRF.

continue last post....

with the non-Metro 3550 it does not seem you can terminate vpn tunnels via the document linked above.

Re: LAN to LAN Tunnel IPSEC VPN

Hi

Thanks for responding I looked at the access gateway option, on our 4500 we are using UTP 100mb ethernet trunk which connects to 3rd Party layer2 ethernet network then we have multiple 3550 switches connected at the remote sites typically with 5 VLAN's each site. As you say on the ordinary 3550 I cant see anything relating to VPN. Are you aware of other switches that can handle this?

Thanks
