I'm after a bit of advice with an installation before i start it.
I currently have a site running Small Business Server 2003. The site IP range is 192.168.1.x
on a standard 255.255.255.0 subnet mask.
The site domain has 5 users on it.
On this site i have a Netgear Router (i might change this to a Draytek 2820n)
My query is,
Iam installing a second site, for which i need to link to the main site using a static VPN link.
The second site will also be running a different domain name naturally (diff company name).
The new site (site 2) will be Small Business Server 2003 also and have a draytek 2820n router.
Before i install SBS2003 on the server for the new site i need some advice on an IP range and subnet to use that will not clash with the main site. I have read lot that some can overlap and cause issues, rather than steam in i thought id ask some advice.
Secondly. I have a couple of users , lets call them "BOB" and "SAM" on the main site. is it possible to link there profiles to the new site in anyway? or should i simply create a profile on the new site called "BOB" / "SAM" and link there Exchange accounts to the main site?
It was my intention with the VPN setup to create a mapped network address on site 2 to site 1.
Am i overlooking anything here or is there anything i should know about before i stumble on it.
Really appreciate any positive advice and will give points where relevant.
note: i know i can hardware VPN to VPN on the draytek routers, this i will probably do but again im unsure of the ip range and subnets , and making them as compatible as possible.
