Introductions

IPSec provides a secure and reliable connection between two different LANs via the static IP address on the WAN. The connection is secured by tunneling protocol and a Pre-Shared Key (password) is provided to secure the connection.

The procedure below details the setup parameters using two UltraSAM modems.
