Hello, I'm new to configuring VPN connections. What I want to accomplish is this. I would like to place a BEFVP41 router at home with a computer behind the router acting as the "backend" of a Microsoft Access database server (i.e. this is where the database tables reside for purpose of centralizing the data). The front end of the database application (i.e, the database forms and modules) reside on each of our three computers at the office. The trick is to have the database applicatation "attach" to the database tables on the computer behind the VPN router at home. To accomplish this, the drive letter of the back end computer behind the VPN router has to be mapped as a network resource of the front end computers. We have limitations at the office suite. There are a number of tenants having separate networks behind a router without VPN capabliities. As far as I know, the router has only one public IP address, and I don't think its practical for us to get a separate internet connection in the office. That is why I'm looking to a VPN Client software solution. The problem is that I have tested this configuration at home where I have two internet connections with two public IP addresses. I attached the BEFVP41 to my static DSL connection and then through the other connection (a dynamic address) I made separate VPN tunnels to the backend computer from two laptops. However, I would get disk errors when the laptops accessed the database. This is not a database issue because when I have the laptops access the backend from separate IP addresses they worked fine. I had a chat with a Linksys support person who thought that because of the nature of VPN traffic when you have two computers on a LAN using VPN client software behind a non-VPN router the non-VPN router has to forward packets coming from ports 50, 500, 1723 and also include GRE(?) 47. Now at the office I have successfully established (one at a time) a VPN connection back to the machines (which are assigned private IP addresses through DHCP) without any port forwarding. Intuitively, I would think that if the office router sends out packet traffic from a LAN computer the router could figure out how to route the return traffic from the BEFVP41 to the originating LAN computer (unless I guess the return traffic is encapsulated and the information and the unencrypted traffic the routing information is coming through ports 50, 500, etc.) As I said, I'm new to all this and a little IT knowledge is dangerous. Putting a VPN router in the office suite is probably not doable, so we are left with using VPN client software. I will be testing for simultaneous VPN connections from the office soon. Does anyone have any suggestions.
