Whats needed for site to site VPN?
I want to create a site to site using windows 2008 DC at both sites. Mainly for active directory replication.
I have a CISCO SRP527W model which has some options for VPN. My question is can the router act as the VPN server or do I have to configure a windows server to do all the VPN configure?
On the CISCO router it has all the options of VPN passthrough enabled. These being PPTP, IPSEC and L2TP enabled. Although no site to site IPSEC policies are defined as yet.
So if creating a windows 2008 DC at the other site, do I need to configure VPN on the server or just the cisco router alone?
As far as I know, these are the steps.
1. Set RRAS server
2. set up VPN policies on both routers
3. Set up primary DC at HQ
4. Set up and additional DC at HQ
5. Move Additional DC to brance site
6. Ping primary DC over VPN
7. Change IP address of secondary DC and wait for replication
