  • Connecting remotely to a DC, via a VPN

    Hi..

    We're about to add on a remote office, and I've done very little VPN work before.. We're on a Server 2003 network and do authentication through our DC..

    I'm going to connect the remote office to our central network via a VPN (Using Watchguard firewall for the VPN).

    At first I was going to put a server at the remote location for authentication, GPO's and etc.. But I'm only looking at 3 users. So I'm beginning to think it might be overkill.

    Since the VPN will always be on, won't they automatically authenticate to the domain and have GPO's applied? For that small of a amount of users, wouldn't just the VPN suffice? I'm thinking that it would make them just an extension of our network.. The primary DC would still handle all IP assignments, wouldn't it?

    Thanks
    David

    are you going to configure a site-to-site vpn or a client access vpn?
