Is there a way to VPN SQL data and CIFS data when the clients are at one MAN location using Windows 7 and the CIFS is on a Windows 2008 server and SQL cluster at another MAN location using a single encryption protocol?  I know that some may ask why encrypt or encpasulate when the data is on a VPN.  The answer is that the data is highly sensitive Personally Identifiable Information.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark

Hi,

Consider enforcing an IPSEC policy between the SQL server and the client?
