VxLan over Ipsec Internet Tunnel

‎07-07-2020 09:33 PM

Hi, I want to know if I can implement VXLAN over a Internet IPSEC tunnel.

Can I implement VXLAN over an Internet Lan 2 Lan Tunnel? What about the MTU?

Thanks

I find this idea intriguing...

 

But yes, VXLAN does add about 100bytes of overhead, so MTU would be a significant consideration.

Keep in mind that you can't control the MTU across the internet like you might in the data centre.

 

What are you trying to achieve? Is it tenant separation?

Perhaps MPLS with tunnels will be a better option?

Thanks, but do I need a minimum of MTU size?
