Can I use MPLS and a VPN connection on a Linksys RV082

I have 2 Linksys RV082's connected with an MPLS connection between 2 sites.  I need to add a VPN connection from a third site.  Does anyone know if an RV082 is capable of doing that, and if so, how to make the connection?
Thanks,
JoMar

The RV092 is certainly capable of creating another tunnel. Is there a tunnel between the existing RV082 boxes? If so, add a second tunnel the same way. ... Thinkpads_User

the current set up is using the advanced routing tab under setup to connect the 2 RV082's.  Can I add a vpn tunnel in addition to those?

I have not used MPLS, so I do not know for sure. Go into the VPN setup and note that all it really needs from the point of view of external connection is a fixed external IP address. If you can provide that, then you should be able to make a tunnel.

I have multiple VPN's set up to clients on my own RV042 router but none are MPLS.

I was able to set up a VPN tunnel along with having static routes for the MPLS.  Thanks for the info.
