Re: vpn connection

Hi

it basically depends upon the type of h/w you are currently using,do revert what kinda media and equipment you are using to connect to the net.

Re: vpn connection

Say if I had 2 cisco 1700, or 2600 routers ? how would I achieve this

Re: vpn connection

Hi

if you have cisco routers in place on these locations best thing to happen for you would be IPSEC between your locations.

if you arent much intersted on that then you would go for GRE too but that isnt much secured when compared to IPSEC.

BTW how about your ip connectivity whether you are getting dynamic ip from your SP or is it a static one provided by your SP.

If its static on both the sides you wont be havng much probs in getting the IPSEC tunnels created between your locations.

But still if u have dynamic at one end and static at the other end u can make it but if you have dynamic on both the ends probably thats not the case with ipsec yet.

Re: vpn connection

So how would I configure it if we both had statics, can you show me a typical config for both ends and what the things mean on the config, would be very greatful

cheers

Re: vpn connection

hi

Router to router ipsec basically involves 3 main point stragtegy which goes like this..

1.Configuraing ISAKMP policies

2.Configuring IPSEC policies

3.Configuring the interesting traffic to be encrypted and applyin it on the outgoing interface..

do find some links on the same which has different kinda scenarios discussed on it..

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/tech/tk583/tk372/technologies_configuration_example09186a008009463b.shtml

They have taken 3 or more routers in discussing the scenarios mentioned in the link , you can refer the config for more info in how to go about in setting them up..

And for the whole lot of repository discussing different scenarios do find this link ..
