I have 2 private networks I would like to bridge over the internet using a pair of Windows 2000 servers.
I am not sure the best way to do this but I found IP-in-IP tunnels which looks like it might do what I need.
I do not need encryption between the networks, just a way to bridge them.
I found this link to be helpful when seting this up: http://piglet.uccs.edu/~scold/iptunnel.htm
Both servers have static ip's and both are running routing and ras to provide NAT for their internal networks.
ServerA has public ip of a.b.c.170
ServerA has private ip of 10.4.20.199
I have route in A for 10.4.20.0 mask 255.255.255.0 gateway c.a.b.253 interface IPTunnel1
ServerB has public ip of c.a.b.253
ServerB has private ip of 10.3.5.1
I have route in B for 10.3.5.0 mask 255.255.255.0 gateway a.b.c.170 interface IPTunnel1
If this is setup right, I should be able to ping any host on both private networks. For some reason, my setup doesn't work.
Is this the proper way to do this, or am I missing something?
Is that website wrong or Is there a better way to accomplish this?
