How to interconnect two locations with a Windows server at each location?
Posted on 2010-08-27
Current scenario: 2 offices, 10 miles apart, 15 PCs each location. Locations each have static IPs. Currently connected via VPN. Each location can currently ping computers at the other location through the VPN.
The current network is peer to peer, but I want to convert both locations to domain scenario with Windows Server 2008. Haven't decided yet if I'll go SBS with Exchange, since everyone is currently getting email via a web host.
What scenario do you recommend to give maximum interconnection between the two locations at acceptable speed? There are about 10 employees who travel between locations with laptops. The majority of work is Microsoft Office, Internet, email. 3 HR people use a database. It would be nice if we could have a single domain.
The Internet connection is currently 10-15mbps download, 1mbps upload.
What do you recommend?
