Sonicwall TZ-100 - Site to site VPN connections
Posted on 2010-09-01
I want to configure a site to site VPN with two Sonicwall TZ-100 firewall devices. Site 2 needs to connect to a server located in Site 1.
Site 1 has a domain controller and a DNS server. Site 2 has no DNS server and is peer to peer network.
The server in site 1 is not represented by a public ip address, nor does it have an A record registered in a zone file. In fact, the company does not even own its own domain name.
I would therefore like to register an A record in Site 2 within the sonic wall TZ-100 device since it is the DNS server. Is there a way to accomplish this since the server in Site one is not registered with any public ip address?
Since there is no local DNS server in site 2, the only solution I see is to modify the local hosts file on each computer in site 2. There are less than 10 computers in site 2.
Does anyone know of a better way to access server 1 in site 1 from the computers in site 2? Configuring a DNS server in site 2 is not an option.
