upgrading to VPN from 2501

Hi,

I have 2 different offices connecting to internet via 2501 routers. We would like to connect them over VPN for VoIP & Video conferencing purposes.

- Can we build VPN using these 2501s? what about VoIP & VC?

-Using 1750s or PIXs at both ends.

- If we go for 1750, Do we need to replace current 2501 with 1750s or they can be used togather.

- What is the deciding factor between 1750 & PIXs?

Any advice or link to more information other than CISCO site will be useful.

TIA.

Re: upgrading to VPN from 2501

I suppose it would work but;

can your 2501's support the level of IOS to do IPSEC ?, & VoIP?

the deal with 1750's is the crypto accelerator card, IPsec can be cpu intensive

A pix is a nice firewall, if yo need to support internet access for clients, it is a better security tool

than a router with the firewall feature set.
