Basic remote VPN dynamic IP question.
Posted on 2004-04-26
I am a networking/VPN novice.
The Netgear FVM318 wireless firewall/VPN router can handle 70 IPSec tunnels, but only one pass-through connection. I'm not sure what this means.
I want to set up a simple VPN via our office DSL line for <10 users, most of whom are road warriors. They would be accessing some kind of file server (probably the Linksys EFG120 NAS). These remote users will of course have only dynamic IP's and would need client VPN software like SafeRemote or Netgear's own ProSafe client.
My question: Does the "one pass-through connection" limit apply to these remote dynamic IP address road warriors, or am I confused here by terminology? I was hoping that multiple simultaneous dynamic IP remote connections would be possible, and the 70 tunnel capability useful.
(BTW, our office DSL line paperwork shows we have a range of 5 static IP addresses, but our current wireless router uses a login name and password, which also confuses me, but might be helpful to you.)
