  • Hi,

    Thank you for the post.

    You cannot setup RRAS on SBS2011 and backup DC in branch office.
    1. Site to site VPN require server with two NIC. But SBS 2011 and DC server are limited to one NIC to work.
    2. SBS2011 server is designed to connect to switch/router which act as default gateway.
    So you have to use hardware VPN device (recommended) or use other two servers with RRAS installed (not recommended) to establish site to site VPN.

    If there are more inquiries on this issue, please feel free to let us know.
