Hi All,

Quick question you experts may be able to answer? ….  We going to setup DMVPN for Cisco for our Head Office and Remote Offices. Originally we was going to use ASA's to run the VPN but found out it Needs to be DMVPN, as it’s the only one of the VPN lot on Cisco which supports Dynamic IP’s at both ends and termination by FDQN for the Peers.

I’m running ASA Software 9.0 on out ASA’s but I understand DMVPN is still not available on the Cisco ASA’s? So I have procured a couple of Cisco 2911's for sites and 2921's for Head Office.

Now what … I’m trying to decide … Should the DMVPN Router be in front of the ASA or After?

Cheers
TME

typically WAN routers are outside firewalls.  I think it would create a lot of additional complexity to place the routers inside the firewalls.

I would put the DMVPN router in a VPN-DMZ, essentially you are using the router as a dedicated VPN device. I assume your sites are operational and already have a WAN edge router in place?

This way you could terminate DMVPN behinf the firewall in a DMZ using source and destination controls as well as IPSEC controls. The traffic would then route unencrypted traffic through a firewall interface where you can inspect and apply policy and controls on the traffic.  I believe  you would leave a door open if you terminated the VPN out side the firewall then routed the traffic to the inside.

In the end it will come down to how much risk you are willing to take? Is the traffic from remote sites secure? is there an internet component?
