(Urgent!) VPN through two firewalls Tags: Firewalls VPN Networking Last response: January 15, 2009 8:55 PM in Networking Share chjade84 January 14, 2009 12:51:15 PM Here is my situation. Our old firewall died and we need to replace it. Our outsourced "tech support" wants us to buy a $3,000 Cisco router so we will have a DMZ port for our FTP server. I think this is overkill for our small business of 30 or so users. I proposed we use two much cheaper Cisco routers (ASA5505 - $350) to create a DMZ like such: Internet --- |ASA5505#1| --- FTP & |ASA5505#2| --- LAN The question I got asked was would we then be able to VPN from the internet to the LAN. I have never tried this and while both firewalls are capable of VPN I am unsure if it will work. Is it possible to VPN the way I want to? How would I go about setting that up? Thanks!

Based on the information I have I would say: Router #1: -Firewall off -Port forward (whatever port(s) VPN uses) to router #2 Router #2: -Firewall on -VPN enabled Can't find your answer ? Ask !
