We are connecting a server to our network via VPN (Client-Gateway).
Our Original IP: 22.214.171.124
Our VPN IP: 192.168.2.1
We would like to be able to still connect to 126.96.36.199. Is this possible, even with multiple IP addresses assigned to the server?
The purpose is that this server is a webserver, but will also need internal network access. The location of this server is external and we can only connect via the windows vpn set-up at t
Our Environment: Windows 2008
Not sure about your network topology so I’ll answer for the scenario as I understood it from your question
The Server (windows 2008) has a public IP (or is mapped to it) 188.8.131.52, dials a VPN connection to your network and then gets an IP 192.168.2.1. You from your network want to access the server on a public IP but can’t.
The problem is probable that the server has the vpn connection as the default gateway (so all traffic gets sent from a private 192.168.2.1 IP, with no NAT to public address, which then creates a problem because you get answered by the private IP to a request that should be answered from a public ip.
In this case you need to remove VPN connection as the default gateway or set up a static route for your network public IP on a server through the servers public interface.
Could you say exactly what kind of VPN are you talking about, a dial-up VPN (if it is, what kind of VPN and what client software) from the Windows server as i described, or is it a site-to-site VPN or a dialup VPN that gets initiated from you network to the Windows Server with 184.108.40.206 IP
