I currently have a BT business broadband connection into my office. Using this internet connection I have to have a lot of VPN connections going out. At the moment I can connect 20 VPN connections, however I need 40. As soon as I try to connect any more than 20 they begin to drop out.

So am I guessing that there is a limit somewhere, I had been informed that it may be a limit on the NAT in the router. The router I am using is the BT Business Hub. If it is the router that is not allowing any more than 20 VPN connections can somebody please suggest a router that would allow me to have 40.

Cheers

The Cisco IPsec and SSL VPN AIM supports up to 800 tunnels on the Cisco 1841, up to 1500 tunnels on the Cisco 2800 Series, and up to 2000 tunnels on the Cisco 3800 Series.

So if I was to get one of these routers, I can plug my internet directly into it? So I will no longer need the BT Business Hub?

Problem solved, was a problem with the ISP, even though they sent me round the houses with the router situation.
