GOOD DAY

 

we have two separate office at the same floor. the distance between them is less than 70 meters. in the 1st office we have a print server and data server and internet connection. Now in the 2nd office we want the users to share the same print server and data server which is in 1st office but they should have different internet connection. Kindly guide me how to achieve that.

Could there be a lan line between offices?
If so you would put in a managed switch and use vlans to isolate the two office lans from each other but give common connection to the printers to everyone.

A vpn will not accomplish this. It will only create a tunnel between office internet connections linking them but you have made one network and you will have difficulty isolating them from each other while sharing the printer

First of does what kind of router do you have and does it support inter vlan routing? So that you can configure routing on a stick?
