Thread: Bridging 2 private networks over the internet

  1. Bridging 2 private networks over the internet

    I am in need of anyones assistance that can help.

    I currently have 2 seperate private class c networks.

    Network 1
    192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

    Network 2
    192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0

    Network 1 is connected to the internet via DSL with a static IP
    Network 2 is connected to the internet via Cable with a static IP

    Network 1 and 2 are both behind firewalls using cable/dsl routers
    Both networks have Windows 2000 Servers.
    I want to bridge the 2 networks so all PC's on network 1 can see all
    PC's on network 2 and vise versa. Is this possible and if so How?

    (Network 1)
    PC 1==192.168.1.100 255.255.255.0
    PC 2==192.168.1.101 255.255.255.0
    Server==192.168.1.200 255.255.255.0
    all 3 have gateways of 192.168.1.1
    DSL router==192.168.1.1 (LAN) (static IP for wan)
    \
    \
    Internet
    /
    /
    (Network 2)
    Cable router==(static IP for wan) 192.168.2.1 (LAN)
    Server==192.168.2.200 255.255.255.0
    PC 1==192.168.2.100 255.255.255.0
    PC 2==192.168.2.101 255.255.255.0
    all 3 have gateways of 192.168.2.1

    I have successfully setup VPN connections between the 2 sites but that
    requires each PC to log on and I would rather just set up bridging
    between the servers so I can have one network.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Can your routers support VPN? If so, set up a VPN between them.

    Sorry. I didn't see all your post. You have already set up VPN. Forget
    my post.

    If i set up a VPN between the server just the severs can talk to one
    another and to the PC's on the others network. However this does not
    allow all the PC's to communicate with each other. I would have to
    open up a vpn connection on all the pcs in order for all pcs to talk
    to each other. If i can some how bridge the two networks I would be
    able to create one logical network allowing all pcs to communicate
    with each other.
