Configure Site-to-Site VPN
Applies To: Windows Essential Business Server
If your network has remote sites that connect by using a site-to-site virtual private network (VPN), you use this task to configure those remote connections. You configure the settings for these connections in Forefront TMG on the Security Server. The configuration steps depend on how you chose to deploy the Security Server in your Windows EBS network:
If you replaced an existing firewall device, or your existing VPN connections terminate at the Security Server, use the Site-to-Site Connection Wizard in Forefront TMG.
If you deployed the Security Server as a back-end firewall behind your existing firewall device (so that your existing VPN connections terminate at the firewall device), use Forefront TMG to define network settings and rules for the remote subnets.
For more information about configuring site-to-site VPN connections, see Forefront TMG Help: On the Security Server, in the Forefront TMG console, press F1.
