Multi Site-Site VPNs question

Hi Guys,

 

So I'm working on a proof concept in PT and learning a lot on the way! I just have a question regarding site-site VPNs, Is it at all possible to have a router at the HQ configured with multiple tunnels to various branches? (see image) 

 

I know that the image depicts the branches being connected to the HQ on separate IP interfaces, but obviously in the real-world it would all be happening over a single interface on the HQ site, the internet connection of course. The problem is I know there is a limit of a single crypto map on a single interface...

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Something like:

crypto map CRYPTO 10 ipsec-isakmp
crypto map CRYPTO 10 match address FOO-01
crypto map CRYPTO 10 set peer 1.1.1.2
crypto map CRYPTO 10 set transform-set BAR-01

crypto map CRYPTO 20 ipsec-isakmp
crypto map CRYPTO 20 match address FOO-02
crypto map CRYPTO 20 set peer 2.2.2.3
crypto map CRYPTO 20 set transform-set BAR-01

crypto map CRYPTO 30 ipsec-isakmp
crypto map CRYPTO 30 match address FOO-03
crypto map CRYPTO 30 set peer 3.3.3.4
crypto map CRYPTO 30 set transform-set BAR-01

crypto map CRYPTO interface outside

 

cheers,

Seb.

Re: Multi Site-Site VPNs question

Hi there,

Yes, it is pretty stand configuration to have multiple VPNs terminated on a single interface. As you mention this would be achieved using a single crypto map with multiple sequences/ peers defined.

 

You should be able to mock it up in PT. Add a switch in bewteen all of the routers and have their 'outside' interfaces connected to a common subnet.

 

cheers,

Seb.

Re: Multi Site-Site VPNs question

Hi Seb,
Thanks for the reply, I figured there'd be a way to do this with a single crypto map...
Would you be able to provide a quick / simple example for how to configure "A single crypto map with multiple sequences / peers defined", is it done in a similar way to an ACL with multiple permit / denies?

Thanks,

Okay, similar to what I was thinking, thanks for the response!

Re: Multi Site-Site VPNs question

You just change the sequence number.  So you can have a single crypto map with 4 VPNs for example.

 

crypto map cm-cryptomap 100 ipsec-isakmp

...

crypto map cm-cryptomap 101 ipsec-isakmp

...

crypto map cm-cryptomap 102 ipsec-isakmp

...

crypto map cm-cryptomap 103 ipsec-isakmp

...

 

If these are routes and are all your own sites I would tend to use DMVPN/iWAN instead.  Even using DVTI tunnel interfaces is likely to be easier.   Using crypto maps seems so "old school" now.

Re: Multi Site-Site VPNs question

Hi Philip,
Thanks for the advice, I'll definitely research DMVPN for future consideration!

Thanks!

Re: Multi Site-Site VPNs question

I'd agree with Phillip and go for DMVPN type solution using multiple Tunnel interfaces with IPSEC protection for each P2P (assuming that the remote peers dont want or dont have reachability with each other. You're going to get more flexibility with regards to routing, no encryption domain definition, etc....

 

ie..

 

!

interface Tunnel0

 tunnel protection ipsec profile P2P-PROFILE
