VPN Setup

Hi,

We have a Sonic Wall TZ190 router. We'd like to set up a VPN so employees can access the network while they're out of the office. The setup wizard in the Sonic Wall looks pretty straight forward and easy to set up. Are there any other considerations before running the wizard? Is it as easy as it seems to create the VPN? If it really is this easy we may replace a cisco router at another office with this Sonic Wall so we don't have to use the consultant every time we need to configure it.

Thanks,
Jason

We have SonicWall TZ170 and TZ190 on two separate systems and I can say that setting up a VPN on this hardware is very straightforward. The employees that want access to this VPN will have to download special software from SonicWall, which I believe is license regulated.
