VPN and MLPPP?

We are considering a 6MB committed T3 vs a 4 x T1 using MLPPP as our internet connection (from AT&T).  Because of our distance from a high-speed POP the T3 will cost over twice as much.

Around 2/3 of our traffic will be a VPN connection to our corporate office.    My understanding is that MLPPP (unlike load balancing) allows a single session to use the full bandwidth, but I want to make sure that there wouldn’t' be any issues with the VPN tunnel on MLPPP.

Primarily looking for someone who has done this before.

We currently bond 3 T1's between 2 sites and you can do MLPPP and loadbalance per packet or should be able to.  I have not seen a situation were one user has been able to saturate the entire link.

Is that what your asking

this is a current example configuration....The biggest draw back is the limited ability to add more bandwidth as needed.  I would say if your cost is that much different then go with MLPPP no brainer seen the difference between a DS3 and this and pretty similar the DS3 did have considerable burstability though which was needed at the time.

Thanks

Partly.  The big difference is that our MLPPP connection would be with our ISP using a public IP address.  Traffic going out to the public internet would go straight out the router, no big deal.  The issue is that about 1/2 to 2/3 of our traffic is intra-office traffic going through a VPN tunnel to our corporate WAN.  The VPN tunnel would appear to the router as a single session.

I just want to make sure that the VPN will be able to use all available bandwidth and not be limited to 1.5.

AFAIK, the channel-bonding and the VPN operate at completely different network layers - the bonded link should be transparent to any sort of VPN.
