So I have received two identical firewalls from HQ (netgear prosafe)
I have set them up and am about to configure a VPN between our two local offices, here are my questions:
1 - When I enable the VPN, does that equal as if i was connecting the two offices to each other with network cable? As in will that office now be getting their DHCP addresses from the other office, have access to network resources, printers etc?
2 - is there anything I need to do in the other office to make the two networks see eachother except for setting up the VPN tunnel?
1 - As soon as i successfully create the VPN connection, magically the server in office-X will start thinking that it is on the local LAN here in the office-Y, and will start acting accordingly
2 - I will use the firewall to run DHCP at office-X and I will use the domain controller here at office-Y and this is the best way forward?
3 - Does the firewall differentiate between local internet connection and going through the "mother server" back at the office-Y? (as in it will use the local connection at office-x for internet requests instead of trying to go over the VPN, and use our gateway here at office-Y)
