Remote Office VPN

I am trying to setup a tunnel between the home office(ASA 5500, on network edge) and a remote office(1800, direct public connection). The goal is to have a config which will allow the remote to learn the routes via EIGRP.

I was informed that the ASA only supports IPSec and I would need GRE in order to allow multicast traffic, which I was told the ASA does not support.

This information seems conflicting, and I am now trying to determine if I need to terminate the home side tunnel on a device other than the ASA.


Re: Remote Office VPN

You can use GRE for passing multicast traffic in ASA whereas IPSec is not supporting passing multicast traffic. Refer to for more information
