Point-to-Point, Cisco Routers, FE or SE ports?
Posted on 2007-10-16
Need to setup a point-to-point for a client and have several questions:
1. Wanted to know which is better configuration:
a. Cisco 2811 & Cisco 1841 using FasthEthernet ports to establish the point-to-point
b. Cisco 2811 & Cisco 1841 usinf serial ports to establish the point-to-point
2. Are there any adavantages or disvantages in using serial ports over FastEthernet ports for the P2P or are teh FastEthernet ports just as good?
3. Also, what would be the best protocol to use to establish the P2P?
4. Should I be encrypting the traffic traveling over the P2P?
