Re: Regarding VPN configuration

that I know but my query is why seprate device is required like VPN concentrator when router can do

Re: Regarding VPN configuration

Well I think it comes from the ethos, of let a router be a router, let a switch be a switch.

Back in the day - if you wanted VPN's you had a concentrator, but then I suspect Cisco started to listen to it's customers. Then VPN's and Firewalls are in the IOS of routers, dynamic routing is coded into Firewalls. Firewalls/Routers performing IPS/IDS/SPAM/SSL etc

I think it's a system of consolodation, one device does all.
