    We have three BEFSX41 routers and would like to set one of them up at the main office and be able to have the other two remote ones connect at the same time.

    Is this possible.

    The main router local subnet would be

    The remote router sites 1 and 2 would be and

    We have setup two tunnels on the main router but both have the Local Secure as the

    The remote sites are using as the Remote Group Setup.

    Using pre-shared secret IKE

    If remote site 1 is connect and remote site 2 connects ... the main router disconnects remote 1.

    Not sure if this can be done with the current technology or if we need to get something different at the main site. Would one of the RV0(48)2 series allow this?

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance for your time in this matter.

    The SX41 should handle two tunnels at once easily. The pre-shared keys should be different for each tunnel. The firmware should be the same in each router. Also it matters which firmware version you use. Some are much more stable than others. Most of most recent ones are fine as is the old reliable standby, 1.45.7.
