VPN to connect 2 LANs with Internet/Public Addressess

We are stting up a VPN tunnel between our CVPN 3005 to customers firewall (type not known yet).

The connection will be always be intiated from our LAN to customer LAN.

The customer wants us to NAT/PAT our privat IPs ( a public address (e.g. that of the Public interface of our 3005).

The customer will also NAT all their IPs (that we we/our users will need to access at the customer LAN).

Is this possible?

Do I simply use Interface based NAT on the 3005 and configure the remote LAN to be the public LAN address?

Re: VPN to connect 2 LANs with Internet/Public Addressess

In 4.0 code we introduced L2L NAT rules, enabling you to do just this. Go under Config - Policy Mgmt - Traffic Mgmt - NAT - LAN-to-LAN Rules, then click on Help in the top right hand corner for a detailed explanation of the function and how to configure it.

Web docs for it are here also:
