Switch 3750G and 3560G and IPSEC

 

Hi Everyone,

 

Need to confirm if switches below

Cisco WS-C3560G-48PS-S Catalyst 35600G 48PT 10/100/1000T 4 SFP 

or

Cisco WS-C3750G-24TS-S Catalyst Switch 4 x SFP

 

Do they support IPSEC VPN?

 

Regards

MAhesh

What I can understand is you may need specific IOS versions and licenses from cisco for this.

If you want to do IPSec then

If you want to do IPSec then you'll need to have a router, a VPN appliance or a firewall.

Switches are Layer 2-only.

Switches are Layer 2-only.  They don't understand what IPSec.  

 

Only routers, VPN appliances and firewalls understand what IPSec and IP Sec runs between these three.

If you mean do they support IPSec VPN termination, no they do not.

If you mean will they forward IPSec VPN packets, they do.
