Adding a data T1 to current network
Posted on 2009-03-31
I have a T1 data connection that has just been turned up between my corp office and a satellite location,the line has been assigned 172.x.x.1 in preperation for a complete cutover once deltacomm finishes the installs at the remaining five offices. My boss has asked me if I would please add the T1 connection to our current network temporarily so that the satellite office will be able to use our EMR software.
My dilemma is this, I currently have five VPN connections established by a Juniper Firewall-VPN, the juniper is assigned 172.x.x.1 the exact same as the router from deltacomm. Is there anyway to add the router with the duplicate IP in to the current network? I thought about creating a new connection in the Juniper binding it to X zone and assigning it an alternate IP? Anyway any and all advice/workarounds would be welcome I have till 8am est tomorrow to try and figure this out.
