Setting up a Site to Site VPN

Posted on 2014-01-29

Hi,

I am setting up a site-to-site VPN, I have an ASA 5510 on the main site which is configured and working normally. Now I would like to setup a VPN with another site. I have static public IPs on both sides. Will it work if I buy a TL-R600VPN which is a TP-Link VPN router in the remote site? I want to set up the VPN because in the remote site's LAN I have IP phones and I want them to be able to communicate with IP PBX which is in the LAN of the Main site.

Thanks

Good evening,

   I can't speak for the TP-Link product as I have not used them in years and I am not familiar with the current firmware in them.  But you might look at the pfSense project for some insight into ASA 5510 VPN to other OEM hardware.  

Here is one of many links --

 You might also look at alternate firmware for the TP_Link hardware if you go that way, as an option if you need it.  I like the Tomato these days.

I agree with phonebuff.

I'm a Pfsense user and it there are several VPNs supported within it e.g. (Openvpn, IPSEC, LT2P, PPTP).

PFsense is free (opensource) and doesn't require much hardware resources. it's better if you set it up and give it a try than risk money and time with TP-Link.

For installation or step by step guide on how to deploy and configure it, please refer to my blog. although this is done on VM on Hyper-V but it really doesn't matter as setup is very much the same.
