IPSEC VPN Help?

L4 Transporter

I have a PA-500 at our main office.

We have a smaller site that currently we have a point to point circuit to, however we may not renew the contract on this, and instead put in a cheaper but faster internet leased line, the idea being to link the two sites through a VPN tunnel.

The other site is too small to justify another PA-500, and I think "Plan A" would be to tunnel all traffic back through the main site.


My question is how simple IPSEC VPN is to configure with a non Palo Alto box at one end, and if it makes any difference what box is at the other end so long as it supports IPSEC VPN - is there anything that the Palo Alto doesn't get on with?

Thanks.

The paloalto device should work fine with any other ipsec vpn device as long as they adhere to the rfc.

thanks,

Most of the times, smaller devices use policy based IPSec VPN. In that case , make sure to configure proxy-ids on the PA side, since PA devices support only route based VPNs.
