Requirements for this are:
- In order to support the set up of the tunnel via the Internet in routing mode, you require the SCALANCE S 61x with firmware V2.1 and the Security Configuration Tool V2.1.
- A fixed external IP address is required for the standard DSL router B, which has to be configured on the passive SCALANCE S 61x. Passive means here that the SCALANCE S 61x waits for the partner to start the tunnel setup.
