Hello
Your authentication is based on two factors; often someting you have, eg. a smartcard and someting you know, eg. a password/pinnumber/passphrase.
This gives greater security than than only using a traditional password.

Hello
No, a RSA server will only be requried at the main site, like the picture in the document you provided show. The remote site were the client is located is portable, if you want static site you should look at site-to-site vpns.

In my office ipsec is configured, right now my users connect to vpn by using cisco vpn client.  i think i have to configure rsa server at my office data centre, now when my office soft engg will connect to vpn they have to enter the token no which will be in token, once authentication is completed than only they can connect to vpn.  am i right.

Hello
I am sorry but I don't understand what you mean with "...they have to enter the token no which will be in token". But if you implement RSA two-factor authentication then you can't get in without a token from the RSA badge
