We have been running a remote office with an IPSec VPN over the Internet for some times, and we are now swinging them to an MPLS connection due to latency problems with voice and remote desktop connections.
I have ordered the MPLS connection from our ISP, but the sales folks are not very familiar with the technology (it is a new product for them) so they couldn't answer all of my questions.
My question is, I have our home office on a Class B 10.100.0.0/16 and our remote office on a Class B 10.101.0.0/16. How should I configure the edge device at each site so that routing works between the two sites? The sales people asked me for a local and remote network with default gateways for each and suggested I create a VLAN for each, but I don't think they are correct as that would suggest a Layer 2 link such as Ethernet, instead of a T1 link like I will be getting. I would think they would give me a WAN IP address for both sides and then I would set that as my gateway for the other side network. Am I not understanding correctly?
Is anyone familiar with configuring the edge routers for a MPLS connection with a T1 handoff and can help me understand it a little better?
