ADSL to build VPN

DSL will not make a difference for your VPN.  It really does not matter the
connection that you have.  Well, I lied, it does matter if your getting some
large files or applications.  However, I have worked on a VPN that uses
SDSL, T-1, IDSL, ADSL,cable, an even some dial ups.  Of course the bigger
the pipe, the faster the download/upload, but the connections are just ways
to get there.   The protocol is what matters.

  I am  currently using ADSL to connect a couple remote sites to a clients
WAN. The VPN has been in production for about 6 months and I haven't had any
problems to date, although most of the apps being run over it are older char
cell apps.....

    Hi All,

    I've a client who's looking at using ADSL as their connection to the
Internet from two remote offices upon which they want to build a VPN using
Cisco Routers. Is there any implication in using ADSL -- will I get bitten
by the asynchronous speeds for example?

    The other issue that's come up is that they have managed to use the same
addresses at both offices (192.168.0.x) and cannot change either easily.
What issues will I face doing NAT and still allowing things like NT drive
shares and remote DB access over such a link?

    Any comments appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Clayton
