So can I do this?

  • I want a remote company to be able to send information to my syslog box. I am thinking of buying a small pfSense box to establish a VPN connection to my office which is behind a Cisco ASA firewall using a ppoe connection .

    The small pfSense box would need to establish a tunnelled GRE connection back to my pfSense box behind my asa.

    I would rather do this than NAT the syslog traffic. If I have a tunnel I can then have greater flexibility later on I think.

    So am I wise to buy pfSense gear to accomplish this type of thing?

  • Yes.

  • Well the reason I ask is because on another thread I discovered I couldn't nat the gre tunnel to one of my spare up addresses behind my ASA. So I thought I had better double check here.
