SBS 2011 Standard server based VPN for inter site AD replication
Posted on 2012-03-20
I have a client that currently has 2 sites and is using SBS 2011 on the main site and Windows 2008 std on the second.
I am looking to configure Windows based VPN link(s) between the sites to allow AD replication.
I have currently configured the second site to connect to the Windows SBS 2011 using the VPN wizard on the main office server, and used a VPN client connection on the second site server; but am having communication issues.
I have run repadmin and it shows that the main site is not able to communicate with the second office.
Do I have to create a separate VPN connection from the main site to the second site server to enable 2 way VPN traffic?
Due to project funding restrictions at this time, we are restricted to utilizing a Windows VPN solution; with future plans to migrate the VPN to a hardware based solution.
Many thanks for any assistance and advice
