Learn it's VPN Peer IP address via a 3030 possible ?

Hi,

We have 2 remote sites "A" and "B" with 837 VPN box that are using Dynamic IP address (DHCP) on public interface (by ISP). At head office, we are using a 3030 concentrator "C" with static IP address.

I can create lan-to-lan tunnels using IPSEC between remote sites to my 3030 with no problem. A to C and B to C.

Now I would like to create a third tunnel between the two remote sites A and B. The problem I have is that they are both configured with DHCP on public interface and addresses changes often.

Is there a way my two remote sites (A and B) could learn their "peer" IP address via the 3030. I've read a lot on this but could'n find any confirmation whether or not it's possible. Anyone have another idea... NHRP, DDNS ????

Any advice will be much appreciated ...

Thanks.

Hi,

Its not possible with the concentrator, vpn3k can't provide the ip address, the thing that you can do is that you can configure your two routers and vpn3k so that two routers can talk to each other via vpn3k.

Donot use any code later than 3.6.7rel.

Thx

Thanks for your post,

You mention that with a VPN3K it's not possible... Does that mean that it would be possible with another type of box ? ie PIX or IOS ???

If so, what would be the general guidelines ?

Your input is really appreciated...

No, it's not possible on other boxes either. The only way to do this is to route traffic from Site A to Site B through the VPN3000.

In the L2L access-list config for each site, include the traffic for the other site, that way it'll be tunnelled and sent to the 3000, which will then re-encrypt it and send it to the other site.

Thank you both for your reply... It's clear now that I have to use my 3K box to route between A and B...

Any reason why we should use code 3.6.7 ??

We are running a hub and spoke design with code 3.5.5 at the Concentrator without problem .
