SA700 Site-to-Site

The company I was recently hired at has a SA 700, and they have asked me to look into our options for using it to extend our corporate network. We are currently using the VPN only for remote access.

I appologize for asking such a basic quesiton, but does this VPN even support site-to-site access? According to the online description and the documentation that I have seen, it is strictly for remote access.

Thank you for your time.

The SA is easier to manage & provide VPN to users. It also allows you to give access without requirement of full VPN (if desired).
It really depends on what you need for your users

Thanks for your response.

If the SRX can be used for remote access, are there any specific benefits to using the SA instead of the SRX?

The SA/MAG series are for Remote access only. You should look at the SRX firewall to do site to site.

I see, thank you. We have an SRX240 cluster, so that must be what they are talking about. Logging into the gateway, I see settings for an IPsec VPN. Am I correct then that the SRX can do site-to-site access and the SA is for remote access?

Re: SA700 Site-to-Site

Yes, that is correct. You can use the SRX for remote access as well, but from a VPN connection, it is site-to-site and the SA/MAG series are for remote access. You would need to query the SRX forum for site-to-site assistance
