I cannot reach my LAN subnet from my remote office RRS feed

  • Question

  • HELP!!!!

    I have a LAN with a Server running (Windows server 2003 standard edition) with two NICs the LAN NIC has 192.168.1.0 subnet and the WAN NIC has 192.168.5.0 subnet connected to a nortel BSR vpn to a remote site which i intended add more sites later. From any PC on the remote site i can reach the WAN interface on the server but cannot reach the LAN. I need to reach the LAN IP because the application we want to reach on the server has the LAN IP configure to it. Can anyone help me out there please

  • I did on the STATIC ROUTE tab, Should i route to the 192.168.1.xx Subnet or to the ip address on the NIC?

  • I was thinking it could be a routing issue on the server, any ideas?

  • Hi :)

    have you check if your firewall has allows both subnet to be able to ping ?

    both 192.168.5 xxx & 192.168.1.xxx are internal network ?

  • Hi,

    You need to setup routing between 192.168.1.x and 192.168.5.x on your router

  • Hi,

    These are two options:

    1. Get a firewall and make VPN site to site -- Better way to sort your problem out

    2. Bridge two connection on your local machine.

  • I disabled the firewal for testing. no luck.

    i connected a computer on the 192.168.5.0 subnet to a port on the VPN box and only when i put a route on that computer i was able to ping the Lan nic (192.168.1.xxx). but i try that on the remote site it does not work

  • Igor,

    i cannot Bridge the two connection because i have routs on the server to other destinations from the network side. Could i just eliminate the WAN card reconfigure the VPN box and connect it to a port on the switch?

  • Pedro,

    Let me get it. The Nortel BSR sits at your side or at remote office?

  • I'm sorry, there are two BSRs presently one on my side and the other on the remote side, the tunnel is between the two BSRs, as a virtual link.

  • Ok, is that BSR on you side acts as a router for your local network as well?

  • No, its on a separate dsl link just for the tunnel and for remote management.

  • Does it use separate DSL line? So actually you have two internet connections: one for browsing, etc... and other for VPN tunnel, correct?

  • Thats correct

  • What router do you use for WAN connection (not VPN)?
