Lan-to-Lan tunnel versus multiple VPN clients

In general for a remote site, is it better to set up a lan-to-lan tunnel (where the individuals do not use VPN clients) or have individual VPN clients (without a lan-to-lan tunnel) connect back? Specifically, is there a bandwidth savings by going through a lan-to-lan tunnel?

Thanks,

Navi

How many clients? That would probably be an determining factor in the overhead to implement and maintain.

One user? Remote client

100 users? lan to lan... imagine trying to install the software client on all users, maintaining passwords, certificates, client updates, etc...

Lan to Lan. No question - you control both ends, you control the logging, you are less dependent on end users' stories on what transpired when, etc.

Right now I have a ton of users using a vpn client to connect to a client, and my life is miserable. I desperately wanted to set up a site to site tunnel with them.

No bandwidth savings with lan to lan.
