Hi there. I'm trying to help a small company setup remote access to their database on their server for roaming users. The limiting factor is their Internet speed. We're on a shared connection that's not very fast, and there is no viable alternative. An online speed test gave me the following results: 2.15 Mb/s down, 2.59 Mb/s up, 33ms ping My current plan is to setup an ASA 5505 to provide SSL VPN connection. There will be Windows 2008 server running Remote Desktop Services. We'll have up to 10 concurrent user (3 or 4 most of the time, but 10 is possible) running RDP over the SSL VPN. Naturally, there will be other traffic over the Internet connection as well... basic web browsing and email from the handful of local users. Is this even possible with our connection? Approximately how much bandwidth would each VPN tunnel require? Thanks for your help.

Hello. I'm hoping someone can clarify a couple of questions about setting up a VPN using RV042 or RV082 devices. I need to setup a point-to-point VPN connection between two small offices. We have a VPN that's working now, but it's a problem when the ISP on one end or the other goes down. There will only be up to 4 users on the VPN at a time, but it's important that their connection goes down as little as possible. The plan is to setup a DSL and a cable connection at each end and use one of the above multi-wan routers for failover. I know that both routers will provide failover for the Internet connection, but will they provide failover for the VPN tunnel? In case I'm not being clear enough, if the cable Internet connection goes down, for instance, will the VPN roll over to the DSL connection on both ends? I saw another thread that indicated that the RV082 has a failover feature for VPN, but that the RV042 does not. Is this correct? If so, do I need the RV082 on both ends, or do I just need the RV082 on one side and can use the RV042 on the other? Thank you for your help. Ramon
