Hi, i'm trying to understand the whole way a VPN works and make it fit a solution I am trying to implement.
I have a DSL Router that can act as a VPN server with a fixed IP for the internet and a fixed IP for the LAN side (192.168.0.1). The Lan connection is then plugged into a Linux box with 2 network cards. One of the network cards has an address on 192.168.0.2 whilst the other has an address of 10.130.1.2 which in turn is plugged into our switched network running on the same range. If I activate the VPN - when a client connects to it - what IP address would I use for the setup, as the VPN configs ask for the 'internal network'. I want my external user to be able to see a server or resources on the 10.130.1.0 range. Would it translate through or does it not work like this?
Many thanks for your time and help.
