Well, I am making leaps and bounds in what I am learning in the area of IPSec VPN Tunnels. I do have a question, though that I hope I can get a simple answer for.
I have 13 locations that I am trying to connect, which we can refer to as Coporate, and Loc1-Loc12. By 'connect' of course I mean with an IPSec Tunnel so that I can do things like simple file sharing between the subnets, VNC connections, etc.
Our current setup looks like this:
Loc1 has a subnet of 10.148.1.xx, and has one IPSec tunnel to the company who serves our Point of Sale system (10.0.0.0).
Loc2 has a subnet of 10.148.2.xx, and has one IPSec tunnel to the company who serves our Point of Sale system (10.0.0.0).
...and so on...
I would like to set it up so that all of our 12 locations are connected to each other so that no matter what location I am at, I can access all of the other locations. Right now I've been playing around with some tunnels to see what works, and right now I have:
Loc1 <--> Corporate
Loc2 <--> Corporate
These connections are working fine, but Loc1 doesn't see Loc2 and Loc2 doesn't see Loc1. Is it possible to do this without creating 78 tunnels? Or will I have to do this:
Corporate <--> Loc1
Corporate <--> Loc2
Loc1 <--> Loc2
Loc1 <--> Loc3
Loc3 <--> Loc2
Loc3 <--> Loc4
Thanks in advance for any help on this.
