Multiple gateways

By caleb ·
I'm sure there is a slick, sexy method for accomplishing what I'm trying to do, but I haven't been able to stumble on it yet. I need to create a second gateway to accommodate specific VPN needs with an offsite Cisco router; we're using a Linksys RV082. Our current infrastructure consists of a Sonicwall firewall into a Netgear Smartswitch. As I said, I'm sure that Sonicwall allows for NAT policies that would work with my needs, I simply haven't had any luck getting the Sonicwall to work with the Linksys. Then I had a thought: why not use a smaller switch to deal with the devices. I did some preliminary testing and they both work fine; seemingly without a hitch. However, I'm hoping to get some feedback on what problems we might be vulnerable to. Obviously the first that comes to mind is DOS attacks.

static route

by Churdoo In reply to Multiple gateways

Although it's not clear what your question is. If I understand correctly, in your main gateway which I believe is your Sonicwall, you should be able to define a static route to send traffic destined for your VPN network to the RV082 gateway.

If you can't do this at the Sonicwall in your present configuration, you can do this on a windows box with a ROUTE ADD -P command
