Site to Site VPN - 1 Domain
Posted on 2011-05-11
I have recently been requested to look into the possibility of connecting 2 offices together. I am relatively new to this and am hoping to pull on your expertise.
From my background I would assume that a site to site vpn using sonicwall or cisco smb products would be a good start given there are a relatively small amount of users (Site A and Site B having 20 staff each).
From what I have been reading most of today, it has always pointed me that each workstation/user at Site B would have to vpn to site A individually. I am hoping I have not come accross great sites.
Is it possible to have Site A and Site B constantly connected where the workstations connected to the router and switch at Site B are authenticating and joining the domain of the server at Site A which would effectively give the impression of 1 network regardless of location?
If it is possible, would the users still log on etc as if it was normal or would they each individually need to create a VPN connection?
I am not currently limited to any version of MS Server however workstations will be using a mix of W7 and XP.
Any help would be appreciated.
