  • Help: Site-to-site vpn in server 2008

    To implement VPN between main office and branch office.

    Main office contains DC, ADDS, FTP running in Server 2008
    i.e., company.local is my domain name.
    We've additional Machine with server 2008 to run VPN.

    At branch office,
    we're planning to run DC in different name, i.e., branch1.company.local
    Here, we need to run DC and VPN service in same server machine.

    Requirement:
    Some Users in main office need to be a roaming user they'll work from both main and branch office and few other users will work from their home.

    Important folders are located in main office only, branch users need to access and be a part of main office LAN.

    Having Static IP only for Main office.

    How to implement VPN site-to-site in server 2008 and link both the DC (company.local and branch1.company .local)
    Any other thing required.

    Help me to implement it.

    Have you reviewed some of the million plus hits on
    https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=se...aRO4jaOfTRgLgD

    There look like some reasonable walkthroughs and demos

    Note that depending on the site routers, a router to router VPN may be easier to implement.

      First tkz,
      Yaa, u're right about routers man.
      But, the environment is too small and cost plays an important factor.
      This is an NGO, so they're not able to pay.

        I have found that (in the UK at least) most routers, even the cheaper ones, support VPNs and setup is definitely MUCH easier than fiddling with RRAS in Windows Server, so I would strongly recommend a few minutes research on the actual routers you use. For you roaming users, you probably will need RRAS but that side of it is easier to configure.

          I was long an advocate of RRAS over routers for site-to-site connections, until Server 2008 came out and Microsoft's (alleged) security changes basically broke the whole thing.

          Basic ADSL modems such as the Netgear DG834 (our modem of choice for being cheap, reliable, plentiful and easy to configure) supports multiple IPSEC tunnels.

          However, if you really want to do it via RRAS have a read of this Technet blog which tries to justify the fact that it doesn't work anymore and gives you a workaround, but don't say I didn't warn you.

            Yaa you guys are right.
            For another client i'm using the Netgear DGN 2200 router.

            But in this case, they brought Digisol basic router for gateway ISP. So, they're not willing to buy the another one. So, forcing to implement via Win 2008.
            That is the prob. here...

            Tka a lot for your kind support guys...
