SonicWall TZ-190 Supported VPN Clients?

Hello, I'm looking to purchase the SonicWall TZ-190 and wanted to check to make sure this appliance is able to support more than 250 users (under 300) as a VPN tunnel head. There would be this SonicWall TZ-190 here in the US and then in France (the other end of the VPN head) would be a beWAN appliance.

Now this TZ-190 could support around 30 users here in the US? It would be working as both a router and VPN IPSecs tunnel head.

This is in regards to this:

I dont think this model has the capacity that you are looking for. Taken from CDW product page:

      Type:             VPN tunnels (remote access)
      Value:             2
      Type:             VPN tunnels (site-to-site)
      Value:             15

Based on the number of VPN connections that you need to make, I would recommend looking at the PRO 1260 or the PRO 2040 (best choice). Both of these support up to 25 and 50 Site-to-Site VPNs, as well as 50 to 100 Client-to-Site VPNs.

The TZ series might get you by, but I imagine that you will run out of available VPN connections whenever more than 15 of your VPN clients are trying to connect.

how many VPN client users do you plan to be using the VPN tunnel at the same time? What about site to site VPN tunnels?

Are you talking about total VPN clients or just on our side of the tunnel? On our side about 30 clients total around 250. This is a site to site tunnel using IPSecs.

This is what my question was, there can only be 15 people on the VPN tunnel?  Or is it that it supports 15 tunnels?

Ah sorry I miss read what you said.

Thanks for your help!
Ugo MenaCommented:
The TZ only supports 2 VPN client (remote access) tunnels and 15 site to site tunnels at once.
The 1260 can support up to 50 VPN client tunnels and 25 site to site tunnels at once.
The 2040 can support up to 100 VPN Client tunnels and 50 site to site tunnels at once.

Yes but it can support 1 tunnel with 30 people all going through that one tunnel correct?
