Ok, we need to deploy a wireless network for an exercise at work. This is going to be set up in a van. So obviously we will have to be able to connect to the WAN wirelessly. We are going to be using satellite or possibly CDMA cell phone technology to do this. But I am open to suggestions. We need to be able to hit the WAN, then log into our company's VPN from there (pptp).
For all clients to be able to access the companys VPN wirelessly in the event of an emergency. (will be using the laptop with cdma card as their gateway to WAN. Or any thing else you can suggest that doesnt require a network drop). It is a PPTP vpn they need to hit.
Last time we did this, we had a Verizon CDMA card in a laptop. The CDMA card was shared (ICS enabled). A wireless access point was then attached to the ethernet interface on the laptop. This allowed all clients, to connect to the WAP and use the Laptop's internal interface (ethernet interface) as their gateway. Diagram here http://mvpbaseball.cc/wireless.jpg
That worked great, but now my boss wants to incorporate some type of "site VPN "? into the mix. I dont know what that is, but apparently it allows all clients to log into one ( local )central router, that automatically connects them to the company's VPN?
Any insight appreciated
