I've got a little predicament. One of the site's that I am IT Admin for has no internet connectivity as of yesterday morning. The site uses AT&T DSL over a static IP assignment, which currently has a site-to-site VPN tunnel established to our colo facility which hosts their application servers. These servers are configured to interract with each site by sending print jobs, scan jobs, etc, through the local IP addresses. For example, user A processes an order through the server, then prints it out. The server then prints the order to user A's networked printer at IP address 192.168.34.9. The server is on 192.168.22.x network. AT&T, in all their infinate wisdom and responsiveness, has created an on-site visit for between noon and 4pm, which will cause this site to lose a lot of business. I was going to be on site when they open and tether my Android device's internet through my netbook to the Sonicwall, then establish VPN connectivity through Sonicwall Global VPN client on each workstation. The problem: printing and scanning won't work as the colo facility won't see the site's network, since a site-to-site isn't established.
Is there any way that I can provide internet access to the Sonicwall via my netbook, which is recieving it from my Android phone, and still get a site-to-site VPN established? T-Mobile obviously isn't providing a static IP address to the device, and I don't believe any software exists for Android that does site-to-site, not that it would matter since the phone isn't acting as the router.
Basically, accessing the colo facility's resources is not a problem through global VPN client, but the colo facility (app servers) seeing the peripheral devices of the remote site seems to be impossible using mobile internet.
Thanks in advance.
