Full Mesh IP Sec question

Need to do a fully meshed IPsec scheme among 5 sites

(probably with a pix) all sites have their own connection to the internet, and some form of NAT going on. All the unregistered addresses (inside)

are the same for each site. Using the sample


I'm wondering if i need to convince the customer

to modify their inside addresses to be site unique.

Re: Full Mesh IP Sec question

Not only should they be unique at each site but they should also follow rfc1918 You can probably get by with some strange NAT setup but things can get very confusing and difficult to scale long-term.

Hope This Helps!

Re: Full Mesh IP Sec question

Cisco's answer for fully meshed VPNs is to use MPLS, which really isn't VPN at all. It looks like a great solution, but not all ISPs support it and those that do charge more for the connection.
