How to setup VPN RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a network setup as follows.

    internet->firewall->Domain server, DHCP, DNS, storage server, vpn server.

    I want to configure VPN so remote users can connect to internal network and access files in the storage server. The Internal network is in 192.168.1.x range. I believe it becomes an issue if the remote user is sitting on same ip range as that i have(ie,192.168.1.x). How can i configure the VPN so that the remote users get a different ip range when connecting and still access the files.

  • Hi,


    You can configure a static IP address pool or use DHCP server to provide IP address to your remote clients.


    And, since the IP range is different from your internal network, you need to add route entries in your RRAS server and other network devices.

  • Yes, it is true. If the IP range is the same, it will bring routing issues to your remove clients.

    Thanks.
