VPN connection

Hi team,

I am wanting to set up a connectivity via VPN from the main office to a remote location using VPN.

The two locations (main and remote location) have both connection to internet.

The main office is using the Cisco router and the remote location uses the kasda modem.

I want to be able to provide helpdesk support to the remote location office whenever they needed the IT support. I can just remote into their system at ease.

I have been using Teamviewer Free and LogmeIn but i am thinking of looking into the VPN solutions now.

Any idea?

Regards, Bakaka

To select a correct router you need to specify the line type and speed. then we can help you select a router and give some sample configurations how to setup a ipsec site 2 site vpn

Your best bet, IMO, would be to purchase another Cisco router, get the right licenses, and then have a site-to-site VPN.

In broad terms:

To set up a site-to-site VPN:

1 Create access list that defines the traffic to be encrypted.
2 Create ISAKMP policies
3 Configure pre-shared keys
4 Create transform set
5 Create crypto map with the access list, peer address, and transform set
6 Assign the crypto map to the appropriate interface

For router type, a 2911 or similar with appropriate licensing.  Make sure the license supports crypto VPN.

thanks again for that. so are you saying that i have to get two of the same router, one for the main location and the other at the remote?

if so how about a person travelling to overseas and wanting to access his computer files at the main office or remote office via his laptop (and internet)?

is there any configuration supported in place for the laptop (from overseas) and the computer at main office?

If you're wanting both Lan2Lan and remote access VPNs, I'd suggest at least one site be an ASA.  Other site can still be a Cisco router, or can be an ASA as well if you have requirements for it.

ok what is ASA and functions for?

asavenerCommented:
ASA is Cisco's security appliance.  It has features for allowing both remote access and lan-to-lan VPN connectivity.  It includes licensing for the Cisco Anyconnect VPN client. Routers, like the 2911, can perform lan-to-lan VPN connections, but do not include the VPN client.
