Setup VPN on Windows 2003 Small Business Server with two network cards behind a firewall
Posted on 2006-06-01
I'm not that advanved in networking and it's my first time to touch this VPN stuff. What we would like to do is set up a VPN in our workplace for our employees to access the servers files frm home. I've tried implementing it myself with what i've read in articles but i have no luck. Here's my settings
Linksys RV082 Dual Broadband Router
- IP 172.16.0.1 with dual WAN
- Subnet 255.255.255.0
Server with DNS, DHCP, AD, DC, IIS and File services. Now to install a VPN
- with dual Network Cards
The network setup is like this
Internet -> Router -> (NIC2) Server
Then from the Router -> Switch -> (NIC1) Server
Then from the Switch -> Workstations
When i tried this setup, the LAN worked perfectly, i was able to login using the AD of the server from the workstations and use the DHCP from the server to get an IP.
However my workstations could not connect to the internet.
At this point too, i had the VPN set up but i haven't tried to connect from outside the network. I guess once i'm passed this part i can play around with the VPN.
I need help. Thanks.
