I'm preparing to install a new 2003SBServer at our main office with a Linksys RV016 router. I intend to configure VPN endpoint tunnes from several (3 for now) remote job sites that will have RV042 routers. My question is who should be the DHCP / DNS server for the LANS. It would seem logical to allow the routers to be the DHCP and DNS server, and not the server...I'm thinking in case the tunnel goes down, or is slow, etc. I should mention our remote sites are all wireless laptops, and will need to RD a terminal server that will be joined to the new domain. They will also receive pop3 email / internet outside of the tunnel. I have a static IP at the main office, but not at the remote sites.
Any advice on this project would be greatly appreciated...any tips from someone who has set this up on the RV series routers.
