I want to set up a VPN between two sites using a PIX to PIX vpn tunnel. An Exchange 5.5 server with some Outlook clients sits in site 1 and Outlook clients only sit in site 2. What would be the best way of setting this up so that the clients in site 2 can access mails sent to them by clients in site 1?
a point to point ipsec tunnel will effectively act like a direct physical link between the two sites. You just need to treat the remote office like any other new subnet. WIll you have any servers at the remote site? If you do, make one a wins and dns server, and configure replication between it and the wins and dns server at the main office with the exchange server. That should take care of all name resolution issues.
Having a domain controller at the remote office is also a best practice
Cheers Jay, thought that probably would be the case - set up somehing similar a while ago. I suppose the PIXs act as a simple router as they are connected to different subnets? Would you know what nasty ports I would have to add to the interesting ACL to get the clients logged onto the domain.
