comment private network IPs (of a VPN) in public DNS
@ribx I've never experienced that: if I configure DNS suffixes properly and statically assign a DNS server in the VPN configuration, it will always use that DNS server.

comment Can I use something like a tunnel for SSH in this Linux/Windows Remote Desktop scenario?
It's too bad you don't have remote access to "Server-L": tunneling RDP over SSH is trivial.

This should work, if you're talking about publishing PuTTY as a RemoteApp on Win Server. Not sure all the features in PuTTY/SSH would work, but a basic shell should be doable.

You want to tunnel SSH over your RDP session to Win Server?

comment private network IPs (of a VPN) in public DNS
@ribx I guess if I look at this top-down, I think to myself, "what is this guy doing differently than 100s of 1000s of Internet-based businesses are doing successfully with standard DNS configurations?". You should be asking yourself this; it's very likely that your business is not a unique snowflake that needs a solution that's different from everyone else's.

comment How to perform an assessment of an existing network?
and 8 hours is pretty optimistic, depending on the environment. We've spent weeks sorting out "small" networks before, if you include licensing, software compliance, etc.

"the response speed of our vserver is not compareable with the response time of the DNS servers of ISPs or google." Get a better DNS server or use a 3rd party like No-IP.com or EasyDNS.

My advice: don't fight the "system", however broken it appears to be.

comment Isolated Network Set-Up
@IsaacKleinman you'd have to check the manual/specs to see, but $55 router to support two businesses? Yikes.

comment Isolated Network Set-Up
@IsaacKleinman with a secondary Internet connection, you'd follow a typical multi-WAN setup (but forgoing the failover/load balancing bit), but you'd be looking at policy (source) routing instead where you'd be actually creating routes based on source address(es) to determine which WAN interface the traffic leaves; likely the NAT rules would be auto-created at that point, but this is all vendor-dependent.

@IsaacKleinman see my edit. Getting a different Internet connection is the correct answer here.

comment Isolated Network Set-Up
@IsaacKleinman isolating networks (webservers in a DMZ, company A from company B, department A, from department B) is Standard Operating Procedure; NAT'ing clients out as different public IPs isn't really something I'd see as being all that useful, unless maybe you're concerned with SMTP blacklisting or something, but if you have control over edge network, you might as well put the same security policies in place to equally protect both.
