Hi Guys,

We have to setup a VPN connection between two branches.
We have 3 x servers at our branch to our disposal.
- Exchange
- ISA (firewall)
- DC

On which server (ideally) should the VPN be configured (DC)?  To prevent complications later on?

One of ISA benefits is it is a VPN server.

So defently ISA server should be the one. NOT DC nor Exchange ...

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

thanks Guys,

Upon adding the role;

For a VPN connection between two offices, I should configure the:

"Secure connection between two private branches"?

or

Default:  Virtual Private Network (VPN) access and NAT?
