Remote VPN access

Remote VPN access

Remote VPN access

(OP)
I have a switch with devices and we are planning to get a VPN supported router also for a remote vpn access.

Can someone tell me how can this be done?. i have switch connected to devices and a computer which manages all the devices. We want to have the access to devices connected to switch remotely.

I think remote access to software will require VPN connectivity back to LAN. But I am not sure how do I implement this. Can someone suggest a way to proceed?.

 

RE: Remote VPN access

Get a Cisco router with the crypto (k9) IPSEC image on it at the edge and set it up as a VPN server.

Is the switch a L3 switch?

We are planning to get a Switch and a router, small business.
So what I understand is router is going to be the one which would have all the connections terminated on. right?.

RE: Remote VPN access

Yes. If this is adsl, an 837 would be ideal.

Do we need a VPN client software?. And also, do we have to use our public address anywhere?. How would we access remotely?. I am just not sure about Address translation. Public to Private(LAN), but how would I get the public address?.

RE: Remote VPN access

You can specify a URL and register your dynamic IP with dyndns.org. It is how I do it---works great.

You will need Cisco VPN client.
