are you planning for hardware based site to site vpn or server software based vpn.

In either choice, you have to invest $$

Let us know your choice.. If you are planning for hardware based VPN, you can go with fortigate 60D UTM, which includes all solutions in one box or you can choose sonicwall.
Kash2nd Line EngineerCommented:
what kind of routers do you have.

If you have a business grade router of some kind on both ends, they will have a VPN feature in them.

Otherwise you will have to invest in 2 routers.

We use Draytek. A 2800 Series will do a good job for you and they aren't expensive either.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
I have not used Draytek, but I have used Juniper and Cisco RV series. The Cisco RV series are entry level commercial, easy to set up, and reasonably economical. I use an RV325 VPN router in my home office. Juniper Netscreen VPN routers are very good but a little more picky to set up.

Draytek are a lot cheaper compared to Ciscos counterpart.
I also use Mikrotek's instead of Cisco, same functionality but extremelly cheap. ;)
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Cisco RV325 was $300. So if that is what you might want, price is not a barrier.

@all thanks for reply
i have ESXi 5 Server so i planned to use a software on virtualize instead of invest xx on hardware
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Putting your VPN in hardware keeps it separate from your virtualized world and that is likely a better solution. The hardware we are recommending is economical.
Qlemo"Batchelor", Developer and EE Topic AdvisorCommented:
If possible, you should always use VPN devices of the same brand, that saves you from a lot of trouble.
For SOHO purposes DrayTek and Cisco RV are fine. Not difficult to set up, but not much of advanced features either.

The "classic" choice of FortiGate, SonicWall, WatchGuard, Juniper SSG, Cisco ASA (in sequence of raising complexity to configure) are for business use with more emphasis on reliability, speed and security (including firewall restrictions), and less on configuration ease.

If you want to keep it cheap (that means only manpower required), and have WIndows Server running, use its RRAS (Routing and Remote Access) to connect via PPTP. But be aware that troubleshooting is a pain and security is neglectable.

You can also set up free OpenVPN, which uses an own implementation of SSL VPN. It is reliable, but does not have firewalling capabilities. OpenVPN runs on Linux and Windows (client or server OS).

ok i understand now Hardware better solution and economical
can you suggest one depending on cheaper price and good enough options
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Cisco RV42G, RV320, RV325 are all good, economical VPN routers that are fairly easy to set up (as easy as IPsec can be to set up).  $300 - $400 thereabouts per router.

Juniper SSG5 is excellent. However where the policy based VPN is more flexible than the Cisco above, it is also more difficult to implement. The results are worth it, even if you need consulting support.

There are lots of choices, but the entry level Cisco are inexpensive and good enough. I use them.
NetExpert Network Solutions Pte LtdTechnical SpecialistCommented:
There are plenty of hardware VPN products are available in the market.

For small medium business you can choose the products based on ur budget

Soninwall, Fortigate, Cisco 800 series routers, CISCO RV series routers and draytek,pfsense

While u prefer hardware VPN box, u can select UTM features too..

It's depends on your budget, you can choose the product

what about Minkrotit RB
The RB750GL is a small SOHO router 
Very useful system only with $55.98
It`s a Linux Kernel many option available
Kash2nd Line EngineerCommented:
the solutions I suggested about will work:

a Draytek 2800 series router(s) --- very easy to configure and by far the cheapest option you have here.

Mikrotik is even cheaper but be warned it requires quite a good understanding of RouterOS for you to get going.
Bryant SchaperCommented:
You can look at Meraki as well, they have a cloud based management and it is point and click to establish the vpn.
MASWORLDAuthor Commented:
@all Thanks
Mikrotik looks good but it need a good understanding of RouterOS
Like Kash suggest
so can you help me with VPN setup script
Qlemo"Batchelor", Developer and EE Topic AdvisorCommented:
I cannot recomment Mikrotik. Too many issues posted on EE (and elsewhere), but I cannot tell from own experience.
Meraki is something I never heard of yet.
Bryant SchaperCommented:
meraki is nice, especially for less technical staff, bought by Cisco.  You could also look at Sophos RED
