Hi there,

can somebody help with a task below.

Our company is about to take over a company offering similar services in another town, which is 50 miles away. This company has similar (and compatible) networking facilities to those just installed by our company. Can you help on how the two networks could be connected to enhance the new, larger company’s operations. Especialy on the networking technology needed to connect two similar networks that are this far apart.

Probably the simplest way will be to connect them with a VPN.

I'd recommend using dedicated equipment at either end that's capable of creating an encrypted VPN tunnel which you could leave running 24/7.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

The other option is to set up leased line connection between that two company networks but might be more expensive than S2S VPN over Internet solution. Anyway you could always check with you local Internet Service Provider (ISP) on the available options.

Hope this helps.
