Here is my situation. I am running SBS2008 on one server, we have a second office that we wish to connect to using a VPN Tunnel, should it also be controlled by a server, say Win 2008R2 with AD and be a DC as well. Each office will need to be able to access data from the other office, ie Database, Client files, possible video chats, etc. The 2 offices will each have their own static IP Address and FQDN.
Right now I am working through a lab setup complete with individual outbound routers each having a static ip address. I can establish a Tunnel between the 2 routers but am unable to access resources on either of the 2 networks. I am able to ping computers on each side but cannot see resources. The remote offices in lab setup has no server attached, that is the reason for the first question above. Haven't setup the server yet on the second lab setup because of shortage of equipment right now. But will solve that if that is the way I need to go.
Alittle background we have been using a VPN connection with our outside field people coming into our SBS2008 server for many years with no problems. I would appreciate any guidence on this matter and look forward to hearing from anyone. Thanks in advnace for your assistance.

for networking there is an own forum http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/winserverNIS/threads and for SBS specific ones please use http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/smallbusinessserver as too many steps are different as in the regular OS versions.
