VPN 30xx with two virtual routers !?

Hello community!

I’ve the following network configuration: 2 ISP Router, 2 VPN concentrators 30xx and 2 edge router to my LAN. From the WAN side (Remote offices) there are VPN tunnels realized with PIXs in every remote office.

I created a redundant configuration with VRRP. The first step was the activation of VRRP on all twin devices (WAN router, VPN, LAN router). This configuration works well and problem less. Now I got a lot more of remote offices and therefore a lot more traffic. My plan was to share the traffic between the both paths (like a fixed load balancing). Each twin device will be configured to support two virtual routers (VRID) – I know this solution from Cisco Routers and Nokia FW devices (also described in RFC2338 - point 4.2).

Now to my prob: Is there a way to configure the VPN concentrator 30xx to handle two different virtual routers? With my doings I got just one virtual router up. Any tips for this configuration or any other suggestion (other design or methods) to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance – Thomas.
