  • Single NIC RRAS W2k3 Servers for site-to-site VPN

    Can it be done?

    Basically, what I am trying to accomplish is connecting 2 office networks via the internet. One firewall / router is a FortiGate-60 at office W, while office H has a generic Linksys WRT54G, both of which are running in NAT mode.

    All computers behind the NAT routers are single NIC machines, with the servers running Windows Server 2003.

    Here's some network information, if it's required.

    Office H private range is 192.168.5.x / 255.255.255.0
    Office W private range is 192.168.10.x / 255.255.255.0

    Windows is also serving up DHCP as well

    Is the subnet mask going to mess things up? Office H has only 4 IP's in use, so if changing network addresses is required, that's where I'm going to do it.

    Ultimately, I'd like clients on both networks to "see" each other, for file / printer sharing, without any end user interaction, using rras for the persistent connection (aka do this without spending any money and use our existing stuff).

    thanks!

    Setup a Site-to-Site or LAN-to-Lan vpn between the firewalls and basically you're done.

      I agree with Dumber on this. It might make it even easier to deploy if you have static IP addresses in both locations.

      The IP scheme should work perfectly with this layout.
