Does anyone know where I can get a good howto or working setup of configuring two sites connected to the Internet, LAN to LAN, running speedstream dsl router on site A and cisco running on site B.

I'm planning to setup a network so that they will use the Internet as the transport for the LAN-to-LAN.

Thanks.

I don't think that the speedstream router is compatible with the Cisco running IPSEC VPN software to enable you to establish LAN-LAN VPN tunnels. There is another solution, the Cisco 3002 VPN client device that has optional 8-port switch built in that sits behind the Speedstream:

Depends on the IOS version that you have, but this might help:

What makes it not compatible? I saw a sample config of two cisco routers back to back using ipsec. From the explanations that I saw, it looks that they will be able to communicate just like, cisco support pre-shared, hash sha, and 3des encryption and also group 2 which is enabled in speedstream, which is also supported by cisco. Group is the 1024.

Please enlighten. Thanks.

I simply made an assumption because I could not find anything about the speedstream on Cisco's web, and the only speedstreams I've seen are very low end that do not have IPSEC running on them. If it does support DES encryption and the same hashing algorythm, I don't see why it wouldn't work.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I've searched Nortel's web site for documentation on the Speedstream routers and came up empty-handed, although I did read in one of the brochures that it was "VPN ready".

If you have the book that came with it, you've got all the information there is..
