Possibility of adding the 3rd interface as a 2nd Public interface?

Is it possible, with VPN 3030, to configure the 3rd interface (which is labeled as "External" and, is usually used for "management", I assume) as another Public interface? So that two different kinds of VPN connections can be physically separated....

Any help and pointers will be much appreciated! -Bill

Re: Possibility of adding the 3rd interface as a 2nd Public inte

Hi Bill,

Its possible to make the External Interface - 3rd Interface a VPN termination interface, one thing you have to look out for is the Routing.. have to make sure you add specific routes for the Networks accessing the External Interface as their will be only one Default gateway on the box which will still be pointing to the Public Interface - 2nd Interface.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Aamir

Re: Possibility of adding the 3rd interface as a 2nd Public inte

Hi Aamir,

I am having problem to understand the use of External interface of VPN3000.

Does it mean I can have a VPN3000 with two Providers? Public interface terminates to ISP 1 and External interface terminates to ISP 2 ?

Regarding the routing (only one default gateway) does it mean the following traffic flow ?

1. Incoming traffic from ISP 1 will go to the Public interface and outgoing traffic will go through the same Public interface.

1. Incoming traffic from ISP 2 will go to the External interface , but outgoing traffic will go through Public interface.

Thanks,

Engel

Re: Possibility of adding the 3rd interface as a 2nd Public inte

Hi Aamir,

When i tried to use External interface as an 2nd internal interface,

I couldn't make it because all traffic gone to the tunnel default gateway.

I set static route to external interface but didn't work properly.

Is it a bug or something ?

If it is how can i use exteranal interface ?

Regards,

Jiho
