We use Active Directory, DHCP, network printers, software and file servers. We want to add two more branches to our network, so users get IP addresses by DHCP and assigned to AD server. How can we create them like remote branches without giving same subnet to remote users?

We want VPN connection on our router with DHCP from the main office to the two remote branches. Is there a solution for this?

Hi TeachMeIT and everyone,

If I understood your “problem”, what you are asking is in some way similar to this question, which I answered.

Basically, the first thing to do is create the wan link to the “main” office. Once you gave a connection in each branch office, you just need to configure or ask your provider to do it for you, a local subnet different from any existent. After this, you need to configure a DHCP Relay Agent in each subnet in order to be able to forward all DHCP requests to the main office/DHCP Server.

I think this is a straight forward process. If you need further clarification, please let me know.

    Based on all of the questions you are asking here and the handle you are using, it sounds like your really should take a course on these topics and/or get a local partner/vendor/reseller to work with you on designing and implementing solutions. Many of the questions you ask have so many options and configurations that the answer "it depends" is a likely response. We do like helping here, but this is not a networking 101 resource for training and education in these questions.
