Re: Pointing new Offices to server

It looks like what you need is a firewall appliance that also has VPN capability.

Do you have a firewall appliance at the Tampa, Fl. location? If so, what is the manufacturer? Does it have VPN capability?

For all the remote offices, you will need similar firewall appliances. I recommend SonicWall firewalls as their web interface for setup is a lot easier than Cisco.

The firewalls for the remote offices must also need VPN capability.

Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..

Sir I have 4200 series 26 ports Switch i want to Configure intra VLAN But I am Getting a problem to Configure that switch . After Cnfigure VLAN on Consol prompt. I am not accessing to my Server & WAN...

If you are creating only Layer 2 VLANs on the switch , you wont be able to ping the servers and Routers as they are in default VLAN1.
you can do the below steps
1. Create sub interfaces on the router LAN interface
2. Provide a new ip range to the new sub interface
3. Make the switch port connecting router as trunk, so that it will carry both the VLAN info
4. on your Labtop/PC give the IP address in the newly defined range
5. Make your switch port to be in the new VLAN

This will work , if you wont be able to configure the above settings, let me know i will give you the detailed config

Hi. I want to set up a server and run dumb terminals (thin clients) off of it. Can anyone give me a basic run-down about how I do that?

You would setup Windows Server. Windows Server 2003 and 2008 Small Business Server comes with a license of Terminal Services Server.

You would first need to setup your Windows Server. Install it according to at least minimum requirements.

Make sure you assign this server the correct role. If this is the primary server and if you intend on hosting dns and dhcp on this machine, then please make sure you are assigning this server these roles.

You will need to create user accounts so that you can log into from your thin clients.

Next you need to run the install for Terminal Server.

Next you need to configure each thin client.

Next try to access each thin client via Remote Desktop as well as the server.

This is the basic run down of the process. If you do not know how to setup a server then you will need to ask that question as this is very detailed. Also you will need to be more detailed in your question as to whether this is a linux based network or a windows based network.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to give me a good rating as well as your vote.

Adding offices to my remote server

The SonicWall TZ 190 is a good appliance for the Tampa location.

The SonicWall TZ 150 is a good appliance for the remaining locations.

For the remote locations, a decision has to be made as to how many sites you want to interconnect to. If you want the network to be such that each site connects to every other site, then you will need the SonicWall TZ 190 as it supports VPNs for up to 15 sites.

In the end, everything comes down to cost. For a Small-to-Midsize Business, this is considered operational cost.

Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..
