Relatively new here but not to the channel, and I don’t really post on forums for help so bear with me if I drop a few noob mistakes initially. I’ll try to describe what I’m trying to achieve as best that I can, no doubt there will be questions.
I have Site A with a full Unifi setup consisting of a UDMP head end, and a raspberry PiVPN Wireguard server for 3 clients. I have Site B with a full Unifi setup of the same.
Site A is a small business setup with a fixed IP internet IP address, Site B is a home environment with no fixed IP address. I have two Synology NAS devices, one at each location. Using the Synology software i want to run their snapshot replication service to backup Site A to Site B.
The Synology devices can do this over the internet apparently, however it requires a number of ports to be punched through the firewall which I’m not really a fan of doing. I would rather setup a permanent tunnel for them to communicate over using the wireguard PI’s if possible.
This is where my knowledge of VPN and Wireguard ends, and where I’m looking for help.
- Is what im looking to do possible?
- Will both Sites still be able to use their own Internet? By this I mean i only want the VPN for these two units to communicate on, no other traffic to traverse the VPN.
- As both sites already have incoming clients configured to access the sites respectively, does this mess them up? or is my understanding that it would be another “adapter”
- How the hell do i do it
As much as i want to get this up and running fast, I would really love to fully understand what I’m doing.
I get the very basics of how it will work, but I would love to fully understand what I’m actually configuring if someone has that time to help.
If i need to add anything else please let me know
