I have a customer with 3 sites.
SITE1: is the main office where they are running a Linux based server and a bespoke piece of software.
SITE2 & 3: the other 2 sites are setup with LAN to LAN VPN's back to SITE 1. Both sub-sites have between 4 and 8 PC's running windows 8.1 with the front end of this software installed and working. To be able to print the main server at head office sends print request back over the VPN to local LAN based printers at SITE 2 & 3
Only one site 2 (4 PC's) is live the other is not. The issue they are having is that after a period of time the printer at site 2 no longer receives print requests and they build up till the machine is restarted at which point it will print.
All sites have DrayTek Vigor 2860's in situ with IPSEC LAN to LAN vpns
SITE 1: 192.168.60.0
SITE 2: 192.168.65.0
SITE 3: 192.168.70.0
All routers at site are on 192.168.x.254
I have fixed the IP on the printer and added it to static list on the router. I can ping from SITE 1 back to the printer at SITE 2 with no problems and no packet loss
Does anyone have any ideas
