A Server Offsite??

At our small company, we have a Flowpoint DSL Router with a static IP, we have two SMC Routers behind that, that filter traffic depending on what applications are being used. So, for example PC Anywhere and Netmeeting go through a different SMC Router than normal network traffic.

Anyway, these two SMC routers that we have, both have IP addresses that were allocated to us as a block IP's from our ISP.

My question is.. can someone set up another SMC router that has an IP in this same block, somewhere offsite and somehow have it part of our network via VPN or does it have to be on the same physical network?

Thanks

It must be on the same network behind the Flowpoint DSL.

Thanks..I didn't know if it could somehow be located off site somewhere. We're trying to trace a person that set up and operated a web site. He was using an IP from our block and we were trying to determine if he had the server physically located on the premises or not.

It would take some awfully creative coding on the routers to make it work. You would have to make the local router think that the remote network on the other end of the VPN tunnel is the same network as the local. Theoretically, I guess you could create a VPN tunnel, then bridge the two sides together. I don't know if the SMC has the capability of doing that.

Try something like NeoTrace to map the locations of a traceroute:
