  • Configure Site to Site connection


    Primary Site:
    Microsoft TMG server acting as a proxy, firewall and router

    Remote Site:
    DLINK DIR-300 home router.

    I would like to have the remote site connect to the primary site basically for AD authentication, central management etc

    Basically, connect remote subnet to primary subnet.

    Both sites have dedicated broadband.

    Can I achieve this via static routes, without initiating a VPN?

    Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

    You will need to have a VPN connection between the primary and the remote site for authentication to be successful.

      If you are using Server 2008R2 / Windows 7, and IF you can do some IPv6, there is a new feature called DirectAccess which allows 2 way connections without VPNs. A lot of hoops to jump through, and unlikely to be successful in this instance, but worth investigating.

      Otherwise, as advised, you will need a VPN tunnel established or use public IPs throughout your network

        TMG supports IPSEC site-to-site VPN tunnels with just about any type of device that supports IPSEC. If your DLink router doesn't support IPSEC there are lots of cheap Netgear modem/routers that do such as the DG834.
