  • Hi,

    I think if in the same network or each on can see the other and connect to it successfully it is possible, may you use VPN, the main concept is that the mirror server and the principle must be seen each other.

    Think about this from network view, if I use NAT or proxy the only visible IP is the public IP of my proxy or NAT but the entire network IPs are not seen to other out side the network an it may be used in othere NAT or Proxies accross the world.

    I does not try to configure such configuration but I judge about it from what I know about Mirroring and Networking.

    I hope this is helpful.

  • As long as you have a SQL edition that supports mirroring and the servers can connect to each other on the ports needed then yes, you can.
