Instead of getting a dedicated T1 line between 2 branch offices, I was thinking of getting cheaper internet T-1 lines in each office and setting up a VPN between them. Since I've never dealt with VPN my questions are:
1. What equipment do I need? Can it be setup just using cisco routers? Is it cheaper to use any other type of equipment?
2. Can the T-1 at each site be used for regular internet connectivity as well as the VPN at the same time?
3. Are VPN's pretty complicated to setup for a begginer/intermediate Cisco tech person?
