Want to setup Tunnelling between 2 routers at diff sites

Unanswered Question
Jul 6th, 2009

Hi Experts,

I would like to setup something like the below Router connection.

PC B PC C

| |

PC A - Router A - Router B - Router C - Router D - PC D

PC - stands for computer.

I would like to do a tunnelling between PC A and PC D, meaning in the process PC A cannot connect to PC B or PC C, only to PC D.

P/S: Sorry, diagram not ilustrate correctly. PC B connected to Router B's LAN, and PC C connected to Router C's LAN.

Any Configuration or examples I can use?

Thanks in advance.

Cindy

I have this problem too.

Perhaps I am not understanding something about your environment. But I am not sure that tunneling would necessarily provide the result that you want.

It would be easy to set up a tunnel between routerA and routerD. And you could set up routing that would access PC D via the tunnel from routerA and that would access PC A via the tunnel from routerD. But that would not prevent PC A from accessing PC B or PC C. To prevent that access you would need to configure an access list on routerA to prevent access from PC A to PC B and PC C (and similar access list filtering on routerD). And once you have the access list filtering in place, then why do you need the tunnel?

If there is something that I have not understood then perhaps you can clarify this?

Rick,

Thanks for your reply..:)

Well, the scenario is like this LAN A and LAN D are vendor's LAN, but LAN B and LAN C are internal network.

We want to have tunnel so that the vendor's PC wont be able to come in to our LANs.

We want them to ride on our WAN Connection but at the same time wanna prevent them from coming to our network.

Hope this clarifies.

Thanks again,

cindy
