How to configure 2 sites connected with VPN
Posted on 2015-02-15
I have 2 sites I want to connect with a VPN.
Site A has 30 users, Site B has 15 users.
Site B has a 10/1MB internet connection which can’t be upgraded for a year or so as there are currently no faster services available in that area.
Site A has a Small Business Server 2011 with 20 CALS.
Site B has a basic NAS.
I want each site to be able to access data at the other site. This will happen infrequently and speed of the data transfer is not an issue.
How should I set this up?
SBS 2011 at Site A as Domain controller for both sites? I would need to purchase more CALs.
SBS 2011 at Site A and another Domain Controller at Site B. I’m not sure if I can do this with SBS.
New Server at Site A and new Server at Site B on the same domain.
New Server at Site A and new Server at Site B on different domains.
Any other recommended configurations?
If I have two Windows Servers on the same domain and 50 users, how many CALs do I need?
Should I configure both sites with the same subnet or different subnets?
