VPN between multiple offices

I need to set up a VPN between my office and 3 others.

I am looking at this like a "star" topology in that my server here
needs to see servers at each of the other offices, but the other offices
do not need to see each other.

The internal address range at my office is 192.168.1.1..255, but each of the
other offices are all in the range of 192.168.6.1..255

Do I need to give each office a different subnet (I'll have to manually configure
quite a few pc's at each office) or can this work without me having to
change IP addresses?

As you can infer, I'm new to VPN's so I'm moderately lost.

Thanks in advance,

Bryan

Yes, you have to put all remote offices in different networks like 192.168.2.x-192.168.3.x-192.168.4.x and so on.

Your main office should also be on differnet network than any othe remote offices. Like 192.168.1.x.

Thank you for the confirmation, knightrider2k2 --
Not necessarily what I wanted to hear, but it makes
sense.  After all, that would ensure that each device
has its own ip address across all the newly created LAN.

Thanks!
