I'm researching how a VPN would work for 2 small offices, so users can connect to a file server in each office to create, write, & read files. All Computers are peer to peer, not domain based.
I'm wondering what the proper terminology is for these scenario's so I can do research, knowing what to "search" for etc.
1. Office A LAN 192.168.0.x, Office B LAN 192.168.1.x.
1A. Can they be different ranges, or MUST they be different ranges ?
1B. Since no domain there is no dns server, do I need to setup routing manually on each computer in each office, to tell it which network ip address is the vpn hardware, so it can effectively map a different ip to the remote VPN ?
1C. How does Office A access the file server at Office B - does user at Office A have a link in Network Places that points to the IP of the server at Office B ?
1D. If I want to use "names" instead of ip addresses to link to the remote file server, would I need to set that up on each computer in their hosts file?
2. File Access & Security
2A. Does the file server at Office A need to have the same user accounts as Office B, so users coming from Office B, connecting to the files server at Office A, security with ACL is maintained?
