Re: difference between Tunnel and vpn

Very general question. A tunnel will classify itself as a low end vpn but if vpn is ipsec for you, then you dont need an ipsec session for running gre tunnels but your data will not be encrypted

Re: difference between Tunnel and vpn

No, you needn't have a VPN created for a Tunnel interface.

Infact when you have a tunnel with encryption and authentication its called VPN.

I hope that solves the concern.

Re: difference between Tunnel and vpn

HI

Sorry again.My question was VPN and Tunnel.

I configure VPN between two site.

again requirement tunnel create between two site.

so I create VPN then Tunnel interface

[GRE Tunneling].

BUT MY QUESTION WAS, I WANT CREATE JUST ONLY TUNNELING INTERFACE FOR TWO SITE ROUTING -DATA PROCESSING. NO IP SEC. THAT MEANS TUNNELING WITHOUT VPN.

I think you all r understand me about my confution.
