    I have purchased a 2 BEFVP41 routers for our larger offices and 5 BEFSX41s for our smaller offices. We have four Windows domains, 3 are 2003 servers, 1 is a 2000 server. Each of the domains provides DHCP services for their own networks.

    I want to connect all the offices via a WAN. I successfully connected two BEFVP41's last night, and can browse between the domains. (Once I turned off the VPN port forwards I had going LOL)

    1. With the VPN's in place, will there be any passthrough of DHCP server requests between the networks? That would be a bad thing.

    2. If I have a all the routers chained in a WAN, would I be able to see an endpoint from *any* of the LANs?

    3. This is probably a Windows server question, but if someone can answer, great - to access other network resources correctly (ie - with username/password permissions) I would use domain trusts in Active Directory, right?

    Basic layout:

    Branches (BEFSX41) TMS, MMS, and Mar all connect to CORP (BEFVP41), and are all separate Windows Domains.
    CORP connects to OCL (BEFVP41), and are both separate domains.
    CONC and REP (BEFSX41) connect to OCL, and are members of the same domain, just different physical plants currently wireless, going DSL)

    1. I've had these units running in the field today, and no DHCP passthrough, so we can cross that off the list.

    2. Still wondering, I imagine that's more of a routing issue than a hardware functionality question.

    3. Looks as if my tests weren't working because the routers aren't able to well... route. I may be able to answer this one on my own once I get this routing sorted out.
