Create a Site-to-Site VPN Connection

You can use the Create Site-to-Site Connection Wizard in Forefront TMG to configure site-to-site virtual private network (VPN) connections. A site-to-site connection, unlike a remote access connection from a remote computer to your network, connects two separate private networks through the Internet. .

For more information about creating VPN connections, see Forefront TMG Help: On the Security Server, in the Forefront TMG console, press F1.


You must use an account that is in the Domain Admins group to perform this procedure.
