I am supporting a business that has a main office in NJ. The main office currently has 15 users. They have a server running SBS 2003. Active Directory and DHCP are handled by the server. There is 300+GB of data stored on the server. The main office has a cisco small business RV082
They recently relocated employees to Florida and set up an office there. I know I can simply purchase another Router and setup a gateway to gateway VPN tunnel between routers so both offices are virtually on the same network.
I had a few questions though-
How will logging into the domain be from the 2nd office with the setup above..by having a gateway to gateway VPN connection between the two routers...slow fast etc? I know this depends on the ISP in the Florida Office. The NJ office has Cable ISP with 100 Mbps Down and 15 Mbps up. Is there anything we can do to make logging in quicker if that becomes an issue with respect to putting a server in florida and letting that act as a DC as well...or something like that?
