Our Company is just about to setup a new office, we are installing a 2Mb adsl line to our ISP via  a BT (cisco) router, we have a win2k domain with 2 x 2Mb bound channel to the ISP with a Cisco router with a VPN snapin.

As this new office is going to be used for Young Adult learners (18 - 24) we dont want them to access the main resources of the HQ headoffice but we would like to access them incase for support issues & updates to various tools (AV etc.....), we would like to log www access. We would like to use a new standalone w2k domain

current idea/s

Each workstation & the server will create a before logon VPN tunnel.

Any other ideas ?????????????

thanks

Kelvin

Hmm you could create a router to router tunnel, and force all traffic out of your main connection, this would allow you to monitor internet activity. You could use windows security to protect your hq resources.  In other words keep a couple of machines that are on the learner domain in your HQ that way you could get access to the server.

I agree with ewtaylor. Just set up a point to point router connection from your HQ edge router to your remote site router using VPN for security. Then attach an access list to the tunnel from your HQ edge router. Just make sure the private addressing at both sites don't collide with one another. If you want to make the Internet available to the remote site then do this in one of two ways. 1. Setup split tunneling at the remote site router or 2. Proxy everything to your HQ and route it that way.

My Boss does not want the learns domain www traffic to hit our backbone, ie... use the ISP as an ISP.

Pain aint he !!

You should be ok, if you find traffic up it is only like an additional 3 lines to add split tunneling
