Two great angles on the problem.
Tesla2k, Local firewall: Could be problematic with the GPO pushed from the mega-corp. But I’ll definitive give it a shot. Right as you say, VPN traffic is always coming from one subnet.
uroni, dataplan_db.txt: Nice this one too. Will pursue that and extend my knowledge on Internet mode to see if this is the way they should go.
Don’t feel to bright right now as I couldn’t come up with these ideas myself.
In the end a total of about 70 machines, the /users/ folder, in 6 branch offices (the OK subnets) will be backed up with this solution.
I’ve also prepared a rather extensive exclusion field to not backup up things not needed. Uroni? Any limit to the file exclusion string under settings? Future: Could that field possibly become a multi row entry? Like this:
and so forth.
It’s a bit inconvenient to edit it all in one long row as it is now.
Brgs and many thanks for your answers.
