Hi! This is a networking performance question. Here is my current setup:
I have a subnet with approximately 20 workstations and 10 servers. Two NetScreen 50 (Juniper) routers are on this network. Router A is used for internet access and remote VPN clients. Router B is used for LAN-to-LAN VPN with approximately 20 sites with about 10 workstations each. The default gateway for servers and workstations is Router B. It means to get to the clients on remote sites, the traffic goes from the server to router B to router A and then to remote site.
My boss is persuaded that adding static routes to each servers for all remote sites to point directly to router A is better then using the routes in the default gateway (router B) because he says the traffic goes from the server to router B then goes back on the switch to router A and then to the remote site.
What would be the best setup? Should I use static routes on each servers? Should I use router A as default gateway and route internet and remote vpn clients traffic to router B? Should I use only one bigger router? Any other idea is welcome.
I've found in the past, that workstations & servers learn about the topology of the network with regards to having multiple routers & routes on the same subnet, once a device has been routed to a different
Network Monitoring is essential to ensure that computer systems and network devices are running. Use PRTG to monitor LANs, servers, websites, applications and devices, bandwidth, virtual environments, remote systems, IoT, and many more. PRTG is easy to set up & use.
When it comes to security, there are always trade-offs between security and convenience/ease of administration. This article examines some of the main pros and cons of using key authentication vs password authentication for hosting an SFTP server.
After creating this article (http://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/23699/Setup-Mikrotik-routers-with-OSPF.html), I decided to make a video (no audio) to show you how to configure the routers and run some trace routes and pings between the 7 sites…
