I'd recommend to establish a VPN (openvpn, ipsec, whatever) between your sites, or even better, and end-to-end VPN between the DRBD nodes, then use the private addresses again in your DRBD config, as now they would not be natted at all, but tunneled via VPN. -- : Lars Ellenberg http://www.linbit.com : : DRBD/HA support and consulting sales at linbit.com : : LINBIT Information Technologies GmbH Tel +43-1-8178292-0 : : Vivenotgasse 48, A-1120 Vienna/Europe Fax +43-1-8178292-82 : __ please don't Cc me, but send to list -- I'm subscribed
