VPN router without firewall?

I'm looking for a VPN router device, but I do not need for it to have any
firewalling functions. I already have a fully functional firewall
(including NAT for my internal network), which I will use to redirect the
VPN traffic to the DMZ port. From there I would like to connect to the VPN
router which will then bridge the traffic to my internal network. All of
the VPN routers I have seen so far (Netgear, Linksys, etc.) all are designed
to be the primary firewall/router/VPN gateway for networks...

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Peter

You will not find anything that doesn't have some level of NAT functionality. It doesn't mean you need to use the NAT features. You would likely want to install the VPN hardware in parallel with the firewall. You would need to make sure that the only traffic being passed by the VPN hardware relates to VPN tunnels.

I have implemented this scenario with Nortel Contivity 1010 equipment to give one example.
