6500 and VPN tunnels

Is it possible to set up vpn tunnels with our remote sites with nothing more than the Sup720-3b, and a FWSM? Someone told me that this couldnt be done without that VPN module or without buying a separate router but I find that hard to believe.

Re: 6500 and VPN tunnels

Hi,

You need an IPSEC SPA Card to do IPSEC Encryption. Please refer the below URL for details.

Without a SPA-IPSEC-2G or IPsec VPN Acceleration Services Module, the IPsec Network Security feature (configured with the crypto ipsec command) is supported in software only for administrative connections to Catalyst 6500 series switches and Cisco 7600 series routers.

Arul
