Connect to parent company
Posted on 2006-06-02
We have just been taken over by another company based approx 200 miles away and need to connect the 2 sites. Both sites have approx 50 users and there are also approx 80 remote users. Applications will be shared between the 2 sites and we will adopt a common email address.
My questions are:
1.) What method do you recommend to connect the two sites
2.) What should I put at the 'ends' at each site
3a.) Both sites have their own exchange server. Should the satellite office just use the one at the head office and collect emails via the VPN or should we keep both servers and connect using RPC.
3b.) If the answer to 3a.) is use RPC then can you provide brief explanation of how this works.
4.) Both sites have their own domain controller. Should we keep it this way?
5.) Baring in mind the above, how should the IP addressing schemes of both sites relate to one another?
