Share One VPN Connection

By Working IT ·
I have a peer-to-peer network with one DSL connection. There are 3 PC on the network. Each PC can sign on to the corp VPN individually. However, if one PC is connected to the VPN, the second PC will get a time-out error when it try to connect.

I would like to setup one of the PC to connect to the VPN all the time. Then the other 2 PC just share the VPN connection from that one PC. Hopefully, this will allow all 3 PC connected to the corp VPN at the same time without dropping any signals.

All PC are running Win2k. What is easiest way to set this up? Or do you have any other recommendations?

have to use Endpoint VPN

e.g. router to router VPN Endpoint there the tunnel is created and maintained by a devices that allows multiple hosts to access the tunnel and pass data.

well you could try that one. Dunno how many hosts that one will allow access to the tunnel at any given time though.

What about a router-to-router VPN solution?

You could map and share drives off the permanent connection system, but you may run into IP connection issue limits on that PC being limited to 10 simultaneous IP connections.

Can you give me some more details? Is there any extra equipement or software I need to purchase?

The corp VPN connection mainly used for Client PCs to connect to one of the Terminal Server. I cannot map any network folder within the VPN. I would like to do that, too if possible. I have posted a separate question on that.

Limitation on 10 IP should be ok.

you can add comments to your question without rejecting an answer. BFilmfan is right in that if you establish an End Point to End Point connection via routers, users behind then can access the tunnel therefore the network. you can create a logon script which will map network drives when users logon to the network because VPN is as if users were on the LAN itself. They must authenticate with the network and logon scripts will run on their machines once they log on.

Do you guys means I can use one of the W2K machine connecting to the VPN all the time and select the "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" in the VPN Properties?
