Roaming Users (mostly Windows, one Linux) that needs concurrent connections to the Office DB (limited bandwidth and different town) and the DataCentre DB (high latency, different country)
So I've confirmed that FortiClient is not going to work, ie. it only handles a single connection.
What other options are others using/advising to be able to have the users access both DBs concurrently?
I would set up a vpn from the office into the DC. Then route remote user traffic through the vpn.
Yes, i would advise the same. Remote user vpn connection to the office, and a S2S VPN between the Office and the DC.
