Concurrent Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN tunnels between the same sites

firmware-8

#1

Available from firmware version 8.0

Introduction

The ability to create up to 5 SpeedFusion tunnels between the same 2 sites has been around since the introduction of firmware 7.0 .
But it wasn’t possible to create a combination of Layer 2 and Layer 3 tunnels until now.

From firmware 8.0 and up you can select one sub-tunnel to bridge to a tagged VLAN (Layer 2), and other sub-tunnels can still work in Layer 3 mode.
These connections work independently giving you the power of Layer 2 bridging and Layer 3 routing at the same time!


How to configure

Follow the steps to create multiple tunnels between your sites as described in this knowledgebase article.

After the tunnels have been configured, navigate to Network > Lan to define a layer2 bridging based PepVPN as described in this knowledgebase article.
