VPN Termination

Robert Craig

My setup is ISP-2811-PIX 515E-LAN. Right now, I am doing a PAT for IPSEC tunnels to terminate on the PIX. Do you recommend I use the 2811 instead of PIX for VPN or keep things the way it is? Trying to determine the best box to use. Thanks!

I would keep it the way it is if nothing breaks.

What are the cons of keeping it with the PIX or percs of using the router? QOS is the only thing I can think of.

i can't think of any cons of keeping it on the PIX as PIX is designed to terminate VPN and firewall capabilities.

But yes, you are right, if you need QoS capability for the traffic within the vpn tunnel then yes, move it to the 2811 router.

OK, will do. Thanks!
