Implementing a Router on a Leased Line for Remote Support

I am looking to implement a VPN tunnel to remote sites for remote support.  Currently I am using the CISCO 837 and gaining access to the remote sites network via an ADSL line implement by ourselves.

What I would like to know is can I acheive the same VPN Tunnel without having to install the ADSL line.  I need to be able to create the tunnel using the remote sites already existing leased line..

Is this possible and what type of router would I need.. Also what would be involved in getting this on the remote sites network.  and one last point.. would the configuration I am using for the 837 to create the tunnel with head office be the same config I would use for this solution.

It depends on their topology, but you could put your router inside their existing firewall, maybe on their LAN. then their firewall only needs to allow the appropriate ports from you to the router, and nothing else. Or it could go outside their firewall, and they can allow you the specific access that they want you to have, sonce the tunnel ends outside. It's more a policy issue than a technical one.

Where does the leased line go, point to point or to the internet? In any case, the ADSL line is just a circuit on an interface. The VPN would still be configured the same way, more or less.
