Best method for networking branch offices
Posted on 2008-10-07
Our company has one main office, and 20 branch offices. The computers in the branch office
are not part of the windows domain in the main office. Each branch site has an internet connection
with dynamic ip address. The main office has a static external ip address and ISA server that
provides clients with internet acces.
Can someone guide me as to how best to network all the sites? I want branch users to each have a file server at their site, however I want to restrict access to files by active directory groups. I also want to be able to remote desktop into the computers. I am thinking of placing an ISA server in each site, but don't know how to configure it in my scenario.
The solution should involve using ISA server and VPNs. How should I go about this ?
