Routers for 4 locations so they can all talk



  • Hello, I have a new install Saturday with four locations. Each branch needs to talk to the other branches as well as headquarters where the server is and the endpoint for each tunnel. I have never had to add routes before as usually its just headquarters and one other branch. Please give me an overview of what routes I might need, how to add them, and how to delete them. I am able to see the default routes via the GUI but an always scared to attempt and change them. Currently each branch can only communicate with iteself and headquarters.

    Example Layout:

    Headquarters - 192.168.0.xxx

    Branch 1 - 10.10.2.xxx

    Branch 2 - 10.10.1.xxx

    Branch 3 - 10.10.3.xxx

    Thanks!



  • Did you read the stickies?



  • Please help I am onsite and stuck! I have read everything I can find on how to do this. Does each site have to VPN to each site?

    You can. You can also add routes accordingly on each so they know how to reach each other via one of the sites.



  • I found out how to do this. When making a an OPEN VPN tunnel there is a box labeled "other options" simply put the router there

    An example would be

    Branch A 192.168.1.xxx
    Branch B 192.168.2.xxx
    Headquarters 10.0.0.1

    If they each branch has a tunnel to headquartes it will automatically add the correct routes for them to talk. However, branch a and branch b will not be able to communicate. On Branch A's router in the "other options" box simply enter route 192.168.2.0 255.255.255.0 and that will send traffic for branch b through headquarters. Of course you have to change branch b's as well to read route 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 as soon as that is done it will immediately start passing traffic.
