Branch Office VPN Setup
Posted on 2006-04-25
I have recently been tasked with integrating a Branch Office to one of the Central Office LAN's that I manage. I have decided to go with a package that our ISP offers, which is a site to site VPN connection, 512KB uplink 3MB down pipe. I'm not sure what the best way to set this up would be. I realize there are several different levels involved in configuring this appropriately, but I would love to begin with just IP assignment recommendations:
LAN #1 A PC's on LAN #1
B PC's Default Gateway (LAN interface of LAN #1 Router)
C WAN Interface of LAN #1 Router
D Managed Device supplied by ISP for VPN Connection *Public IP needed here?
LAN #2 E Managed Device supplied by ISP for VPN Connection * Public IP needed here?
F WAN Interface of LAN #2 Router
G PC's Default Gateway (LAN interface of LAN #2 Router)
H PC's on LAN #2
So, I would love to hear how you all would set this up IP-wise, and I would also see a need for some static routes here, so any recommendations in that regard are also welcomed.
