    Having selected an appropriate WAN connection, the company would now like you to suggest a strategy to facilitate the offices working securely within a single network with access to all services and also to accommodate remote working. You should:
    • Discuss the provision of VPNs for both site to site and remote working for the staff based from home
    • Evaluate appropriate tunnelling protocols with a secure implementation with regard to authentication and encryption (IPsec)
    • Discuss the equipment required to implement the WAN, secure VPNs, how routing is implemented and any troubleshooting techniques that may be useful.

    If anyone can share light on what I am meant to do, that would be great ;)

    Ahh the joys....

    1) Create site to site VPN between the offices. Basic VPN config will have subnets of both sites in it (local and remote) and Phase 1\Phase 2 VPN settings depending on your VPN standards. There may be a PSK\Cert etc. used as well. One firewall decided as the remote endpoint for remote workers
    2) Decide Phase 1\Phase 2 settings
    3) ?? Secure VPN may have two form factor authentication for remote users etc. and SSO for AD authentication. Routing is basically when the user connects to site A from home there is a route to site B so resources can be accessed.

    Troubleshooting? Ping check across the VPN tunnel to show site to site connectivity and a log file of logon attempts when users cant type their own password.

    Do I get a beer now? :)
