I have two network locations points X and Y for simplicity, my issue is that they can only be linked using another companies network cabling (they provide me with a CAT5 port at each location).
I want to create some sort of secure network bridge between these two locations so my data is protected from the other companies information and for reasons I won't bore anyone with X and Y must have the same IP structure so I can't route the IP traffic to a different IP address and subnet.
I also need 100MB bandwidth which rules out most Cisco products, the closest I have come to an idea is to have a computer at each location with 2 NIC's but I do not know how to create the bridge and provide some form of security/encryption on it.
Any help and gratefully appreciated
