Internet access through VPN

Is it possible to have a VPN connection between two sites but only one has connection to the internet, and from the site without direct connection to internet rich to internet through the first site. In site with internet there is an SSG140 and in the site without internet there is an SSG5.

The connection between sites is done by an ISP

I could realize only the VPN

Re: Internet access through VPN

I'm not sure why you'd want to do such a thing.

I guess you could only allow internet access to the SSL VPN and make them login to it before being able to reach the internet. But you could have a better solution with just the two firewalls.

Regardless, bandwidth is bandwidth. It doesn't matter if it goes over a VPN tunnel between firewalls or just out over the internet to a SSL VPN.

EDIT: the only thing I could think of would be a P2P connection which might cost less. You still wouldn't need an SSL VPN, just a VPN tunnel between firewalls.
