Connect two ESX hosts via vpn behind NAT

  • Hello All,

    Tech dude but not a WAN/VPN expert. Any help would be appreciated.

    I need connect two (or more) ESXi hosts, or other hosts/appliances that cannot install a VPN client, in different locations behind NAT.


    It seems to me that there would need to be a site-to-site vpn setup and the ESXi hosts would need to have a separate VMkernel setup for the VPN connection through OpenVPN.

    Another option would be to setup the vpn as a gateway/router and change the gateway in the hosts.

    Does either of these make sense? Is there a better way to do it? Is there documentation?

    Thanks in advance,
