New remote site, which hardware should I use for a site-site VPN?
Posted on 2006-07-20
We are setting up a new site, and are looking for the best way to establish a connection back to our head office. We already have a Microsoft PPTP VPN server setup and configured for individual users to gain remote access to our head office. The new office will have two thin clients and a network printer.
I was thinking the best way of setting this up would be to setup a site-site VPN connection as this will allow the thin clients to connect to the terminal server, and the terminal server will be able to print to the network printer, allowing anyone, including staff in our head office to print to the remote office printer.
However, I don't know which hardware or software would be the best way to go. I would prefer to use the Microsoft PPTP VPN we have setup so that we don't have to change our RADIUS reporting, and so that our firewall configuration will be centralised.
Are there any cost effective routers out there that will connect to a Microsoft PPTP VPN?
If not, then what about cheap routers that will allow the use of a RADIUS server for auth?
Thanks for the help
