The usuage of "Site to Site" and clients is confusing - do you need to connet 10 individual, mobile clients or a branch with 10 clients?
Are you using IPSec or (Open)SSL VPN?

QlemoC++ DeveloperCommented:
That doesn't answer my question.

Do you want a single VPN connection used by all machines at one location, or each client as a separate VPN? The former requires another VPN hardware in each branch, the latter a client on each machine (and a lot of available connections on the Astaro).

QlemoC++ DeveloperCommented:
Then you need a VPN device on each branch. You can trick some VPN clients into acting as a router, but that is only to use if you do not have no other choice.
Do you have that device? If yes, it is another Astaro?

Summary of what we know yet:
* HQ has Astaro 8.0
* branches should use site-2-site IPSec tunnel

Ok what if i need all clients/branches to connect.to.the headiffice only!?

QlemoC++ DeveloperCommented:
You are not clear. You are talking about 10 clients in one branch first, now there are many branches!?

But even if there are multiple branches - that does not change anything. Whether the branches need to communicate directly or via the HQ, however, is something completely different.
You need a VPN device in each branch. That's it. Only if there is one, maybe two clients only in each branch a client VPN might be better.

ok thx, but isnt there a easyer way!

QlemoC++ DeveloperCommented:
Easier to use or easier to set up?
Since I have not seen how the Astaro IPSec works yet, I only know the SSL VPN part (which is OpenVPN), I cannot tell. But in general you only have the choice between using a client on each machine you want connect from, or a device managing the connection and acting as a router.

With the details you gave that is all we can tell, sorry.

Which part of my answer you did not understand? It should be pretty clear now it is feasible, but a question of preference and existing hardware.
