PHP VPN Remote Data

Hi peeps,

I have a Main VPN gateway that connects to several different gateways behind.  I want to have a web server connected to the Main VPN gateway that will display information from several different IP address through the VPN.

My aim is to have a page that displays information from each server on the VPN. Then from a page be able to access those different servers. Web Server Server1 (Tunneled through VPN) Server2 (Tunneled through VPN) Server3 (Tunneled through VPN)

For example if I went to:

It would display the web server on Server1 (through the VPN).
The local machine ( can access those addresses no problem.  Ive tried searching the web but I'm not 100% sure what I'm searching for, any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

SINCE the IP addresses you are referencing to fall into the "inter-office" or "intranet" RANGE of IP addresses you can ONLY access this boxes through the WEB SERVERS network. Therefore you must either:

1.) Network shared virtual directory {RECOMMENDED METHOD!} (Windows Server)



2.) Use address forwarding/triggering (Network Configured Typically Done At Router) to allow the other servers port 80 to be forwarded or routed from an alternate port incoming in the network.

the INTERNET connection would be:


3.) If this is just an administrative connection that is needed you could VNC or Remotely Connect To Server and navigate FROM THE SERVERS OS ENVIRNMENT.

LogMeIn (PC, MAC):


UltraVNC (Multi-Platform):

#1 is recommended because you can specify INTERNALLY on the web server the VIRTUAL DIRECTORY that paths to the OTHER BOXES

web directory path

virtual path

See how nice that is :)
