What is the VPN Box? What is the relation between VPN Box and VPN module on the router?
As with firewall functionality, VPN functionality may be implemented within a router, or in a dedicated device. The tradeoffs are typical: router-based VPNs may be less powerful or flexible than those running on dedicated hardware. For many with constrained requirements, using the VPN capabilities of the router may be a cost-effective solution; for others, the capacity of a dedicated VPN appliance may be needed.
