Hi Thomas

You should be able a port from your isp's public nat box to you private linux box.

You can then use this public ip / port pair.

otherwise you can create a tunnel which has only one fixed end, this is what I do for when I am roaming.

The tunnel would stay stable and allow the routing between networks.
You might want to consider quagga to do the dynamic routing with.

Hi Thomas,

Hi Doug,

thanks for your advice.


It depends on what you'll want to use to connect the two networks. I
use Linux at both ends connecting several Windows based network.


Sorry, I didn't mention that. Of course, both networks have a static internet access through a Linux firewall (on which I want to implement the vpn).

But I'm worried about the side with the private (non-routable, 192.168.x.x/24) network. There the external interface of the Linux gateway has a private address too!

Here is the situation:

private network (eg. 192.168.1.0/24)
|
Linux
|(external interface with _private_ address)
|
|
NAT-Box of internet provider |
internet
|
| (external interface with static official IP)
Linux
|
private network (eg. 192.168.2.0/24)



Both ends will have to have access to the internet.  In my case, each
linux box have real world internet addresses connecting the 2
networks with a 2nd network card hooking into the local network.  I'm
using a TUN device between these two networks and I'm having Linux
routing.  Works very nicely.


I hope, it works for me too.


If your going to use Windows as the tunnel server, I can't help here,
but I'm sure there are several others here that can.


No.
