Hi David,

 

We use the VPN so that our external employees have access to internal resources on the company network. Ability to access anything their network profile allows would be best but the bare minimum would be access to the primary email and file servers.  When they are connected, I’d love to be able to remote into the systems as needed in order to fix various issues that come up too.

Hi!

 

Josh Cepek made some good points.

(allthough I believe the NAT-enabled router scenarion, the router itself is not neccesary, it can be done without it*)

 

So the question is (again):

What do you (from the viewpoint of a VPN client laptop) want ?

Acces some hosts on your compay ?

Access the entire compyny LAN ?

Access thee hotel LAN ?

Access the (rest of) internet ?

 

If you don't tell us what you want, we can't tell you how to do it ;-)

 

Regards,

David

 

PS: I am using a latop with VPN with overlapping networks every day and it works fine.

For what I want. I know what I want. And that works.

Hi David,

 

Currently, VPN users have access to all network resources allowed to them by their Active Directory account (Windows servers) or separate logins for the Linux systems. 

 

Most of their access is DNS-based though.

 

Primary Domain Controller + DNS Server: 10.0.0.105

Backup Domain Controller + DNS Server: 10.0.0.107

Primary Email Server: 10.0.0.104

Backup Email Server: 10.0.0.103

Web Server + Time Server: 10.0.1.139

Primary File Server: 10.0.0.120

 

Unfortunately, all of these are pretty necessary.
