Creating a Branch Office VPN for more than one user
Posted on 2011-03-24
I have set up basic VPN connections in the past to connect to my work network from home but this is my first foray into linking offices and mulitple users so if I am going in completely the wrong direction please let me know.
There is no Domain in place and each site just has a peer to peer network currently, in the future we will be moving towards and full Domain set up but for now I would like to get some quick connections made if possible.
I have a head office with an SQL server that I want branch office to be able to connect to through VPN.
I am planning on purchasing a Draytek Vigor 2820 for the home office and setting up a VPN account on the router.
Now at the remote site I can connect to the VPN using a WinXP pro machine and hit the SQL server via the IP address.
I am guessing I can set up seperate VPN accounts on the router for each client but I am limited to 32 accounts.
What is the best way to connect the site to the VPN and then share this connection out to the rest of the site.
Thanks in advance for your help
