 Subject:  RE: [m0n0wall] Question about Point to Point VPN Using M0n0wall
 Date:  Fri, 14 Jan 2005 14:12:21 -0800
I have one Soekris box running 1.2b2 that terminates 4 IPSEC tunnels (2
m0n0 / 2 FreeSwan) all of which see a fairly steady flow of traffic, as
well as up to 10-12 PPTP connections all across 2xT1 (3Mb), while also
providing firewall/NAT services to about 30 internal hosts. I've never
seen load avg exceed 30% (Generally more like 20%). I'm using a 4801 w/
the 1211 VPN accelerator card. Total cost < $350 and it's been ROCK
solid for about 9 months and counting.

Hope that helps...

Yes, it can be done. I would even suggest a Node B ===> Node C
connection to simplify the routing. This has been discussed before on
the list. If I remember correctly, the biggest question has been
sizing of the m0n0walls. I do not think embedded platforms are
suggested for this application. I may be wrong, someone correct if I

Does anyone know the if there is a limit on tunnels you can establish,
or is it up to your hardware?
