GRE over IPSec Tunnel and NAT Between Cisco and VyOS

The goal of this tutorial is to provide a configuration for Cisco and VyOS network devices with configured PAT (Port Address Translation) that connect two remote sides A and B through point-to-point GRE tunnel encapsulated into a IPsec tunnel. In a previous tutorial we proved that GRE tunnels in conjunction with IPsec tunnels transmit multicast traffic while data […]

GRE over IPSec Tunnel Between Cisco and VyOS

The previous tutorial shown GRE tunnel configuration between Cisco router and Linux Core. The big advantage of GRE protocol is that it encapsulates L3 and higher protocols inside the GRE tunnel so routing updates and other multicast traffic can be successfully transferred over the tunnel. The main drawback of GRE protocol is the lack of built-in […]

GRE Tunnel Between Cisco and Linux

Generic Routing Encapsulation – GRE is a tunneling protocol originally developed by Cisco that encapsulates various network protocols inside virtual point-to-point tunnel. It transports multicast traffic via GRE tunnel so it allows passing of routing information between connected networks. As it lacks of security it is very often used in conjunction IP SEC VPN that on […]
