Lan network through the WAN interface
Please help me with what I hope is a simple issue.
I am currently working from home because of the Covid -19 fun!.
I am working on a project with a work mate (who is also at home). What I want to do is have his PC and my PC on the same network. We are working on a project that uses a client/server setup. So he need to "download" information to my machine.
This is a siemens SCADA system, and normally the server and client sit in the same room, on the same lan network, but obviously we are stuck :(.
So very basically we need the machines to think they are on the same network.
Please can you tell me how to go about this. I am also not a network guy so please type slowly so that I can understand ;)
if you need Layer2 connectivity you may want to implement this: https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/book/openvpn/bridged-openvpn-connections.html
Warning: this may break your current VPN-config!
Recheck if your Siemens really need layer 2.
With layer 3 you could run any default Site to Site VPN like OpenVPN in tun mode.
