Site-to-site IPsec VPN
A site-to-site VPN that allows you to connect two or more sites separated by a wide area network (WAN) such that they appear to be on a single private network. The following figure shows a site connected by a tunnel.
The following figure shows how the Vyatta router supports IPsec-protected site-to-site tunnels.
For site-to-site IPsec tunnels, the Vyatta router supports a special kind of interface—a virtual tunnel interface—that provides a routable interface at the endpoints of the tunnel.
