Multiple SG-1100 for connecting 4 sites together



  • I like to connect 3 sites with an SG-1100 each to a fourth location with an SG-1100 as well. Basically I will have machines in each location backing up over the web to the 4th location. I am looking at around 7 to 10 mbps from each location (maximun) which will all hit the 4th sg1100. Am I better off setting up a peer to peer vpn type network? or a better suggestion?

    I would just use hub and spoke for that. It seems like all the 'spokes' have to connect to the 'hub' to function.

    You could add separate direct tunnels if required later.

    At 30Mbps at the hub the SG-1100 should be fine with either IPSec or OpenVPN.

    There's little point using a mesh type setup when all the traffic is from the remote sites to the central site in my opinion.

    You might be able route traffic via another site if a link goes down providing some redundancy. It would be a far more complex setup though.

    You might check the TINC package for a mesh setup.
