5 DSL routers to 1 506E

I want to be abled to connect 5x 827 DSL Routers to a single 506E. Why you ask! I have a central Site that will become a Terminal Server Farm and multiple remote sites that will vpn in via their own 501's to the 506E. Each of the 5 routers will have their own IP 29 bit ip range. The Question is how do I set the 506E to use different routers for each of the remote sites. Yes a faster link would be a better solution rather than having 5 DSL routers but for too many reasons I am stuck with trying to make this solution work. All assistance greatly Appreciated.

Re: 5 DSL routers to 1 506E


You have several options:

routers with static IP address:

routers with dhcp assigned IP address:

Or EZvpn, which the 506E will be the server and the remote sites will be hardware clients.

For the PIX configuration you will use this sample:

For the routers:

So the decision is yours,

Re: 5 DSL routers to 1 506E

Thanks for the info however I'm not sure if I explained myself fully.

At the central site I will have a PIX 506E.

The remote sites will have PIX 501's.

The 506E will be connected to the lan interfaces of 5 Cisco 827 DSL routers. So the central site has 1 PIX and 5 Routers.

Each of the routers will have their own 29bit internet IP address.

The remote sites will be connected to the net using Dynamic ADSL connections with their 501 PIX's establishing a VPN connection to the central sites 506E. Making it a Dynamic to Static VPN which I can do.

Do I just set up nat on the routers and give a single ip to the 506E's external interface if so do I make the 506E send vpn traffic for site A through router A and vpn traffic for site B go through Router B?
