Is there difference between a VPN router and a router with VPN pasthrough or are they considered VPN Routers IF they have passthrough?

What hardware would be necessary to conect to 2003 VPN server on both ends? Would both routers on client and server need to be Vpn pass through or Something else? I have had TCP errors in the 700's. And that is where one router has vpn passthrough the other one does not.

This is a good question as the real difference can be confused by unclear marketing tactics. The term, VPN router, should really only be used for routers which can terminate VPN connections. For example, a road warrior could establish a VPN connection to the router without the need for a VPN server behind it. VPN pass-through on the other hand is simply the ability to allow a VPN connection through the router. In that case, a VPN server of some sort will need to be present behind the router.

In your scenario, if you've already got the Windows 2003 VPN servers in place on either end, you will just require routers with VPN-passthrough capability.

Thanks for your help...

So not having a vpn passthrough router would explain the reason why after making the vpn connection there is no browsing abilitys or not even being able to type \\servername from the client or pinging the server?

Are you using PPTP or IPSEC?

Your problem might be something else such as the traffic not being able to route across the VPN. When the client has connected up, do an ipconfig /all on the client and see what IP address, gateway etc the VPN connection is giving you
