Best method to create VPN tunnel between 2 GWN7000s?
« on: May 17, 2017, 02:08:51 PM »
Has anyone set up a VPN between 2 units yet?

We are considering putting in these at a customer with 2 locations.
They will need a VPN tunnel to pass traffic between them.

It will also need to be able to have QoS on the SIP traffic over the VPN (they will have GXP phones at the remote site connected to a UCM at the main site).

I tried setting up an IPSec tunnel in the settings between our unit and another that is at another customer's site.
It just says "Connecting" as the status.
Maybe I am missing something?

The GWN7000 can only be an OPENVPN server. It can be an OPENVPN,  PPTP and IPSEC client, if I recall correctly.

To clarify as I have experienced it so far the GWN7000 can only be used in point to point OpenVPN tunnels as either server or client. 
Can it be set up to connect to "road warriors"?

It should be possible to have an IPsec-tunnel betwenn 2 GWN7000, but I could not establish one:

Hopefully with the next firmware...

I just checked the GWN7000 Manual:

"the GWN7000 to be connected to a remote VPN server using PPTP, L2TP/IPSec and OpenVPNĀ® protocols, or configure an OpenVPNĀ® server"

So it would seem that the GWN7000 can act as an OpenVPN client or server, but only a client for PPTP or L2TP/IPSec.

I wish it would act as a server for all three protocols too.
