BT Business Hub 3 and VPN tunnels


[link to this post]
 
does anyone know if the BT Business Hub 3 can be configured with a vpn tunnel?

At work i have 2 adsl lines (one is a BT Line and one is a talktalk line)

I bought 2 * TP-LINK TD-W8960N 300Mbps Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem Router as these were cheap and have a IPSec VPN function built in.

This allowed me to connect together two remote sites together quite easily.

Now the BT line is being upgraded to BT Fibre in a few weeks and I need to know if the BT Business Hub 3 I now have in my possession supports VPN tunnels as i need to get the vpn back up and running as quickly as possible after the BT engineer has done his part.

thanks.

The TP-LINK TD-W8960N has a WAN port - one of the four LAN ports can be reconfigured. So, you will need to ask BT to provide a MODEM only rather than use the Business Hub.

http://www.tp-link.com/lk/products/details/?model=TD... confirms it.

Hi

i was think more of getting rid of one of the tp-link routers and replacing it with the BT Business hub , if it supports vpn tunnels.

I don't think it has a IPSec VPN function built in
