IPSec+OSPF, using Tunnel GRE/IP or IPSEC/IP

Hi,

i'm using IPSec+OSPF. There're the two possible solutions for protocol/transprot using Tunnel Interfaces:

a) GRE/IP with crypto-map, or

b) IPSEC/IP with crypto ipsec profile

What are the advantage/disadvantage using a) or b)...?

My main connection is based on direct Ethernet, but the backup solution depends on an E1 dialer-profile, so it's difficult to use dynamic routing for transport tunnel-source/-destination addresses and avoid from routing these addresse through the tunnel...

regards

Frank

Re: IPSec+OSPF, using Tunnel GRE/IP or IPSEC/IP

IPSec supports the encryption of unicast IP traffic only. Therefore, routing protocols like Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) and Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and non-IP traffic like Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) and AppleTalk are unable to be encrypted using IPSec. Encapsulate such traffic in Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) before encryption, using a GRE over an IPSec configuration. With GRE over IPSec, traffic will be encapsulated first and then encrypted.
