Layer 2 VPN

Post by tjansen » Fri Oct 12, 2018 10:53 am


I am looking to implement a layer 2 VPN between 5 remote sites (2 users at each) to a main site. The plan is to have a vpn connection between between each remote site and the main site. Having looked at the OpenVPN documentation, we can have a OpenVPN server with the software being hosted on a local VM and the client software being hosted on a PC/VM at the remote sites. Would it be possible to have the client sofware installed on all sites and connect to an Azure VM and still maintian the layer 2 connectivity ? This is key for us as we have VLANs at each site which we need end to end.

Any help on this would be appreicated.
