I need to establish a VPN tunnel between office A and B. Bi directional support is required. Please see details below.


Office A

Office A is running a flat level IP Scheme with no VLANS. It's current ip scheme is: /22. A microsoft threat management gateway is installed at this office. Only a small number of people need connectivity to office B. Around 8 people.


Office B

Office B would only like office A to access their /28 addresses over the tunnel.



What's the cleanest and best way to establish a tunnel between the two sites from an IP perspective? Office A will need to make a /28 range available over the tunnel, but instead of allocating the necessary users with static IP addresses on their workstations is there a better way to manage this tunnel?


Appreciate any advice and guidance.

You are not concerned about the office LAN subnets[ except that they need to be different at each site] when talking about WAN traffic

The /28 or /22 is a subnet mask and not the actual subnet.

Your users don't need static ips.  You would filter via a firewall vpn policy to only allow those host names access to the vpn.
