Ok… a client of mine needs me to set up a VPN for them. They are in one building with two offices and they need there privacy from each other.


I know some routers have ability to be able to do this and there is also software out there that can accomplish as well. My problem is I have never set one up before and do not know where to begin. This does need to be very compacted set up, just a simple VPN.


Can someone people give me a hand on where to start! I would like to get this done for them in the next couple off weeks, cuz after that I am moving and going to school and I need the $$ from this job for school!!

That’s in advance! :tazz:

As of right now they just have a DCHP Advanced file sharing network. Essentially this can stay the same; they just need to be able to take half the network split it up so that they can not see each other al all.

I believe what you need is a router instaed of VPN to separates the two offices. in other words, a router separate a network to two networks while VPN conenctis two networks to one network.

Can you recommend a router that can do this?


That’s what I had in my mind.. what it was going to be.
