VPN GURU's LEND ME YOUR EARS!!!!!
Posted on 2006-04-28
I have been trying to the best of my ability to gather information on the best site-to-site VPN solution for one of my customers. I am a LAN administrator for a Central School District as my “day job”, and I manage several businesses LAN’s for a side endeavor. Given my LAN background, I have never had to embark onto the WAN side of the house…..until recently. One of my clients recently acquired another business, and they would like this newly acquired business to use their server, and Automotive Management Application, remotely. This seems like a perfect fit for a site-to-site VPN solution, unfortunately I am familiar with their setup and configuration in concept only. I am looking at purchasing a Cisco 700 series or 800 series router for both locations, and going this route for the VPN. I will be using a 512 KB uplink/3MB download line through Broadband Cable ISP. I am also planning on registering two static IP’s. If you can find the time, any insight you can give to a VPN idiot would be absolutely phenomenal.
