Need to add site to site vpn
Posted on 2013-12-05
I have a client that needs to connect two offices with site to site vpn. Once device is a sonicwall tz210 which is no problem. The other office is using their isp's crappy router and it does not do ipsec vpn and we can't take it out.
I tried bridge mode but it kills their waiting room tv's (all part of the same service) and the first thing the isp does when there is an issue is reset the router and then all the settings are gone.
I need to add a vpn server but I need some suggestions. Is there a cheap ipsec vpn box I can buy? I checked the usual suspects like netgear and sonicwall but they are either ssl vpn or vpn routers.
I thought about adding vpn to the server, it is 2008 r2, but I was not sure if that will do site to site or if it is just for clients connecting.
Any help is appreciated.
