    I am currently setting up a Terminal Services Server so one of our new sites can connect to the server that is located in our central HQ

    Now I plan to have a VPN connection between the sites so the terminal services connections are fully protected.

    I am wondering what routers would you suggest I use for this?

    Obviously the HQ router will also need to be able to receive VPNs from other sites as we start to roll this solution out at other offices.

    The number of actual PCs connecting Via TS is not that high (about 20 I would say)

    so just to cut the question down

    what is the best router to host a VPN solution and what is the best router to use dial and sustain the VPN connection?

    How critical is it that the link remains up?
    How important is the security of the data?
    TS encrypts its connection by default and you can force high encryption (128 bit) to further secure the links.
    The recommended kit depends on these factors.
    A Pair of Drayteks would be fine if it isn't the end of the world if teh 2 sites cant communicate, but if its a little more critical than that then you need to consider more expensive kit and adding some redundancy.

    well as its TS no one can work without the VPN connection. The reason i want to use a VPN is so I don't need to open the port on our firewall... i know how hacker kids love to destroy your day.

    how about a Cisco 7140 for HQ

    or

    Vigor 3300V

    and

    Vigor2800V for the remote offices

    ok

    well i am struggling

    I have decided to go Cisco for my VPN setup butI am struggling to find what i need here.

    I need to Cisco switch config that can create a secure VPN

    I have 5 remote sites that all wish to connect to 1 main site so the main VPN router has to be able to create the VPN and the other switches need to be able to terminate it.

    this is a medium size business with about 60 users.
