adtran ta 608, cisco pix 501, win2k3 server, virtual private networking
Posted on 2005-04-25
OK, here is another question to all you experts, I know you can help me learn something new.
We just got a T1 line install (the data portion anyways). They installed an AdTran TA 608 router. We have a Cisco PIX 501 firewall, and a Windows 2003 Server.
Installation went fine and the internet is very fast. Now for the fun stuff.
In order for the AdTran to port forward, I have to call the ISP to set that up. I asked if it wsa possible for me to do it and they will send me a username/password to login to the AdTran.
We are going to be opening another store in the near future with DSL or cable internet and 2 Windows XP Pro machines.
In our current store with the T1 we have it setup like, AdTran to outside interface of PIX, 1 inside interface to lan with server attached to lan. We are going to need a vpn so we can share a database to the other store requiring file sharing. Also employees on the road will need to take pda cellphones to get access to the database as well.
I have read that the AdTran should be connected to the Windows Server, and a 2nd nic to the lan.
Should I setup this way or am I ok? And how would I go about setting up the VPN for this situation?
I am a noobie to T1 and vpn but am learning. TIA.
