vpn- connectivity

Here is my scenario:

3 sites:  192.168.3.x, 192.168.4.x & 192.168.5.x (site to site )

sites 3.x and 4.x currently has a tunnel between them.  site, 4.x only tunnel into site 5.x.

note:  there is no tunnel between 3.x and 5.x

Is there a way to make devices in site 5.x communicate with devices in site 3.x without having to create a separate tunnel ?  and what you recommending?

Yes you can setup what you call a hub and spoke VPN setup.

So you have a core VPN router, firewall, whatever (Site 4) and everything else connects back to that.

What kind of firewall's / VPN devices do you have at each site?

Since everything connects back to site 4.x you'll need to tell site 5 that site 3's network is available through site 4 and you'll need to tell site 3 that site 5's network is availbe through site 4.

So essentially you have your VPN tunnels and the destination network available across the VPN at Site 5 will be 192.168.3.x and 192.168.4.x

Then the destination networks available across the VPN from Site 3 to 4 is:
192.168.4.x and 192.168.5.x

Make sense?

By tell I mean for example on Sonicwall's that I've set this up on we have a destination network object that is available across the VPN. So when we do a setup like this we put in that destination network object, whatever networks are available on the other side.


I'm not sure what the settings is on those 3 devices, but you need to modify the VPN on Site 3 and add site 5 as a destination and not just site 4. It needs to be site 4 and 5.

Site 5's VPN needs to have Site 4 and 3 as a destination through it's VPN back to Site 4.

I'm not sure if the linksys will actually route all that though, but I would think it could.

Your not creating a tunnel between 3 and 5. Your simply routing traffic from 3 to 5 through 4 which you do have a tunnel with and vice versa for 5 back to 3.

Your VPN tunnels are only between 3 and 4 and 4 and 5.

Thanks, Themightydude.   correct.  I think my problem is that I have a Linksys in the middle (the 4.x) and I can't seem to find within Linksys the feature to do so or unless I'm not looking at it correctly?
