RE: Requesting info: VPN solution

If you just want to connect two offices via a VPN, the best choice would
be to stick a cisco 1751 at each location. These routers have VPN
accelerator cards so you would not have to worry about a performance
hit. You will have a lot of options with these routers to connect the
sites.

1. You can set up a tunnel interfaces and run ospf if you want both
sites to share routes.
2. You can set up an ipsec tunnel from site A to site B if want to
restrict access to the networks.

Its pretty simple and it is a lot easier than maintaining a linux box
with FreeS/Wan or SuperFreeS/Wan, but of course the cost is a bit high
for the routers. Or if you already have cisco routers at both site just
load the correct IOS on them!

Subject: Requesting info: VPN solution



Good afternoon list,



Yet again, it's time for me to pick your brain...  I've been asked to
develop a VPN solution that will require little to no maintenance.



Project Goal: Connect two computers, on two public networks, to secure
data transfers between the two.  Ex: Offsite backup.



If anyone can recommend any hardware solutions that would establish a
secure connection...  I was looking into Cisco 1712 series...



The sky is the limit on this one, and I've been given a fairly
reasonable budget...



I've never setup anything like this before, so I'm open to any, and all
suggestions...



Thank you,

Nick Diotte
