Re: VPN

1) VPN in new switch

Unless you have a 6500 switch you can not do VPN in a switch.

VPN is normally L3.

2) Difference between VLAN and VPN

they are not the same. It is like comparing a boat with an airplane two totally different things for totaly different purposes but both can carry packets to and from destinations.

a vpn is generally used when you connect a faraway LAN o'r computer to the local LAN to allow for a "secure" encrypted connection

a VLAN is in general a separator of broadcast zones. no encryption.

two totally different things but both send packets.

Good luck
