  • I'm trying to VPN 2 servers [Was: Vpn]

    Hello Im trying to vpn 2 servers. I have vpn setup on the main server. I can connect to it just fine. Now i want to connect my branch office server to always be connected to my main server. I think i need to do it through demand-dial. Is tha correct?

    You'd probably be better off with a pair of VPN routers - makes life far easier.

      Not sure I agree about using routers - rather depends on the router. I've done it with Netgears using IPSec tunnels which was pretty straightforward. The same setup using a Pix 501 and 515 was less fun than drowning.

      It's certainly do-able using RRAS and Demand Dial to create a site-to-site VPN, although it's much easier if you have ISA Server at both ends too. This Microsoft article should help.
