Community LAN VPN issue
Posted on 2003-03-28
Our small condo has a shared T-1 line. It was practically free because we put the administrative phone lines on the T-1 line using Voice over IP. The nice thing is we get to use the bandwidth for internet when the phone lines are not in use. A Cisco IAD2400 serves as the router and dhcp server. The router connects to a series of baystack managed switches. The access so far has been great, but recently someone started experimenting with a AT&T VPN client to connect to their office with little success.
So far, we have tried setting up a static IP inside the router and opening up ports specified by the employers IT dept.
We do have the option to add public IP addresses to the router.
I am trying to think ahead to the day when several users are attempting to use VPN at the same time.
Question: What would be the best way to allow multiple users to access different VPN servers from inside our community LAN?
