6. PepVPN with SpeedFusion Settings
This section will describe how to set up PepVPN with SpeedFusion.
6.1 Background
Peplink FusionHub securely connects one or more branch offices to your company's
main datacenter or to other branches. Data, voice, and video communications between
these locations are kept confidential across the public Internet.
FusionHub’s SpeedFusion Bandwidth Bonding feature, enabled by default, is specifically
designed for multi-WAN environments. FusionHub can bond all WAN bandwidth for
routing SpeedFusion traffic, and unless all of one site’s WAN connections are down, the
Peplink Balance can keep your VPN up and running.
When supporting multiple VPN connections, FusionHub can act as a central hub that
connects branch offices. For example, if Branch Office A and Branch Office B make VPN
connections to Headquarters C, both branch office LAN subnets and the subnets behind
them (e.g., static routes) will also be advertised to Headquarters C and the other
branches. In this example, Branch Office A will be able to access Branch Office B via
Headquarters C.
The local LAN subnet and subnets behind the LAN will be advertised to the VPN. All VPN
members (branch offices and the datacenter) will be able to route to local subnets.
Note that all LAN subnets and subnets behind them must be unique. Otherwise, VPN
members will not be able to access each other.
All data can be routed over the VPN using the 256-bit AES encryption standard.
In the following sections, three FusionHub application examples illustrate how to set up
your devices.

7. In order to make a direct link between FusionHub and the video server shown on
the right-hand side of Figure 5.1, we need to add one more port (a network
adapter) to FusionHub’s virtual machine.
Adding a network adapter when using ESXi server
a. Login to the ESXi server again, and then power off the FusionHub virtual
machine. Next, click E
​ dit virtual machine settings​. On the F
​ usionHub –

Virtual Machine Properties​ dialog, click A
​ dd​ to add another network adapter.
94
b. Select ​Ethernet Adapter​, and then click​ Next.
95
c. Select a network and adapter from the drop-down menus, and then click ​Next​.
96
d. Click ​Finish​ and then O
​ K​ to save your settings.
97
Adding a network adapter when using VMware Workstation
a. Power off the FusionHub virtual machine and select E
​ dit > Virtual Network
Editor
98
b. Under VMnet Information, select V
​ Mnet0​ and check ​Bridged (connect VMs
directly to the external network)​. Select the appropriate network adapter
from the drop-down menu and click O
​ K​.
99
c. Click Add Network.
d. On the A
​ dd a Virtual Network d
​ ialog, select a network to add from the
drop-down menu and click OK. In this example, we selected ​VMnet2.
100
e. Select the V
​ Mnet2​ network added in the previous step and check ​Bridged
(connect VMs directly to the external network)​. Click ​OK ​to apply
changes.
101
f. Click FusionHub and select Edit virtual machine settings. On the Virtual Machine
Settings dialog, select Network adapter. Check Custom: Specific virtual network
and select VMnet0 (Bridged). Then click Add to add another network adapter.
102
g. Select Network Adapter and click Next.
103
h. Check ​Custom: Specific virtual network ​and select V
​ Mnet2 (Bridged)​ from
the drop-down menu. Click ​Finish​ to complete the network adapter addition
process.
Adding a network adapter when using VMware Player
The V
​ irtual Network Editor​ is not available in ​VMware Player​. If you want to test
this example with VMware Player, first add a virtual network editor to VMware Player.
Then follow the steps described in V
​ Mware Workstation​ to modify and add network
adapters. For details on adding a virtual network editor to VMware Player, refer to

e-player-2.html#post275406
8. After adding one or more network adapters to the FusionHub virtual machine, select
FusionHub​ again. Click P
​ ower on the virtual machine​, and then reconnect to
the FusionHub Web admin interface. Navigate to N
​ etwork > LAN​.
104
9. Once you’ve set up the LAN port, click S
​ ave​ and then A
​ pply Changes​. In this
case, the IP address of Port 2 is 1
​ 72.16.31.100​.
10. To set up the video server as shown in Figure 5.1, enter 1
​ 72.16.31.x​ as its IP
address, and then set the default gateway so that it is the same as the IP address of
FusionHub's port (in this example, the video server’s default gateway address is
172.16.31.100​). Finally, directly link the video server and FusionHub Port 2 with
one network cable.

6.3 Example Two
Figure 5.2 Offices interconnect
In this example, the hosts located at Office A want to communicate with the host
located at Headquarters.
107
Case one:​ Supposing that network access is always made from Office A to
Headquarters, setup your devices as follows:
M
​ AX BR1 Settings
The settings for the MAX BR1 in Office A are the same as those in the first example,
except that the R
​ emote IP Address/Host Names Optional​ item in the PepVPN
profile for FusionHub should be changed to the IP address of the firewall/router
.
108
FusionHub Settings
The FusionHub settings are also the same as those used in the first example, except
that we need only one FusionHub port in this example. Therefore, if you have added a
second port during Example One, please complete the following steps to remove one
port:
1. Power off the FusionHub
2. Remove the network adapter added in Example One
3. Power on the FusionHub
Next, connect to the FusionHub Web admin interface. Navigate to ​Network > WAN​.
Check the box under ​SpeedFusion Peers Access Internal Network​ to enable it. To
save your changes, click O
​ K​ and then A
​ pply Changes​.
109
Check ​NAT Mode​ in the PepVPN profile for FusionHub.
Firewall/Router
settings
Forward ​UDP port 4500​ to FusionHub (192.168.200.12, in our example).​ T
​ hen
forward ​TCP port 32015​ to FusionHub (192.168.200.12, in our example).
Case two: ​Supposing that network access needs to be available on both sides:
Follow the same steps in case one except i​ n Step 2 do not check ​NAT Mode​ in
the PepVPN profile for FusionHub.
Configuring the hosts located on the Headquarters LAN
In Figure 5.2, the host located on the Headquarters LAN is a PC named ​Internal
Server​. In this example, you would need to add a static return route on this PC. For a
PC running Windows, the command to add a static route is ​route add -p​ <MAX BR1
LAN's network> <MAX BR1's netmask> <FusionHub's local IP address>.
Example: >
​ route add -p 192.168.71.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.200.12​ (assuming
FusionHub's local IP is 192.168.200.12). Here, ​-p​ makes the added route persistent
across system reboots. This option is not supported in Windows 95.
NOTE: If you use a Peplink product as your firewall/router in this example, you will
need to disable all PepVPN with SpeedFusion profiles.

6.4 Example Three
Figure 5.3 Public VPN Access / Location Dependent Content Access
In this case, the settings of the MAX BR1 in Country A and the MAX HD2 in Country B
are similar to those settings in the first example. However, the following changes must
be made:
111
MAX BR1 Settings
1. Navigate to A
​ dvanced > PepVPN​, and then click

2. On the dialog displayed next, check the box under ​Send All Traffic To​. Select
FusionHub​ from the drop-down menu. Here, F
​ usionHub​ is the profile name. Next,
set ​DNS server​ to the same address used by FusionHub's DNS server, which is
10.8.8.1​ in this example. To save your changes, click O
​ K​ and then A
​ pply
Changes​.
MAX HD2 Settings
1. Navigate to Advanced > SpeedFusion, and then click
To.
under Send All Traffic
2. On the dialog displayed next, check the box under ​Send All Traffic To​. Select
FusionHub​ from the drop-down menu. Here, F
​ usionHub​ is the profile name. Next,
set ​DNS Server​ to the same address used by FusionHub's DNS server, which is
10.8.8.1​ in this example. To save your changes, click O
​ K​ and then A
​ pply
Changes​.
113
The FusionHub settings are also similar to those settings in the first example, except
that we need only one FusionHub port in this example. Enabling ​SpeedFusion Peers
Access Internal Network​ is not needed here, so we’ve left the box unchecked.
