Is Openvpn Access Server a good option for remote and site-to-site VPN?
Posted on 2013-11-30
A client has two branch offices in different geographical areas that need to be connected to their headquarters, via VPN, primarily for data backup purposes.
The backup application is going to run on an in-house Windows server in the headquarters. The I.T administrator at the hq will log in to the systems at the branch offices remotely and perform the backup manually.
My original idea was to put UTM boxes in each location to create the VPN, but after looking at the OpenVPN Access server from Openvpn.net, it looks like it could do the trick for a much lower cost.
Does anyone here have any experience using OpenVpn Access server? Would you recommend it for my purpose? It looks like we will have to use the Virtual appliance as we will be running it on a Windows Server.
Thanks in advance.
