Re: 1720 with 2 wic1enet and a befsx41


few queries on what you would like to do exactly with the setup.

are you going to terminate the cable on ur linksys router and configure vpn on ur 1720 router ??

if thats the case whats the ip addressing scheme you have ? have you got enough public ip space over there to take care of the global reachability of the inside router from the outside world ?

nothing will be as good as a small topological diagram on the kinda network setup you wanted to have in place ..
