I have a Cisco 2800 router with a VPN configured at the home office. Remotely I can access whatever files I need. What I now need for my remote site is a way to be able to access the home office files and the local network/ internet at the same time. The VPN will most likely have to be always connected. The remote site will have DSL and typically a Linksys  home network type router. Any suggestions on how to accomplish this task would be appreciated. I have to install this next week.

If you want a permanent site to site VPN, so any PCs at the remote site can access the home office, the best solution would be to deploy a cisco router at the remote site and create a site to site VPN between the two. You can then choose what traffic to send over the VPN or over the internet link.

If you just want a client VPN at the remote site, ou can configure the client VPN to use a split tunnel and only send traffic in a split tunnel ACL over the VPN.

a split tunnel in cisco devices is set up on the actual router or firewall
you just basically have to issue a split tunnel comamnd to the internal network so that all traffic fom the vpn to this network is secured and all traffic to the internet is not
you can do it via command lines or the wizard on the firewall
i wouldnt think this is supported on the linskys

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
