I have a site A which consists of the following IP address and subnets:

  1. 192.168.10.0/24 (internal)
  2. 172.17.0.0/24(DMZ)
  3. BGP tunnel tunnel IP with 172.16.0.1 255.255.255.252
  4. Cloud IP address of 10.0.0.0/8

I would like to do a Site-to-Site VPN from Site B to Site A.

Site B consist of the IP address block: 172.16.0.0/12

My question is:

If I do a Site-to-Site VPN from B to A(DMZ) will it cause any IP conflicts? Or, do I need to do something to prevent 172.16.0.0/12(site B) to go to the 192.168.10.254 router?

  • At site b, do you use any addresses in the range 172.16.0.0 - 172.16.0.4? – Ron Trunk Jan 5 '18 at 2:53
  • Hi Ron, yes there is one IP with 172.16.0.1 – user3612001 Jan 5 '18 at 7:12
  • You can NAT the local subnet (172.16.0.0/12) at Site B to another subnet when doing VPN tunnel between Sites A and B. – Hung Tran Jan 5 '18 at 9:10

Question A: with non-conflicting adresses/networks there will be no problem

Question B: you can set up all routes through the tunnel but on site A you need to make sure that the already present 172.16.0.1/30 has a lower metric/higher priority than the 172.16.0.0/12 to site B. That means that you can't reach B's 172.16.0.1 from site A. Solving this would involve destination NAT which is rather messy.

Making A's 172.16.0.1/30 reachable from site B will also be tricky and messy. Do really need it? Is renumbering an option?

  • Hi Zac67, Thank for your reply. i wish i could change the IP addresses =( – user3612001 Jan 5 '18 at 8:12
  • Hi, If right now from site B to site A (DMZ)(172.17.0.0/24) network and in the site to site settings i only allow 172.16.0.0/24 to enter my subnet. Will this still cause a IP conflict with BGP tunnel IP address? – user3612001 Feb 2 '18 at 9:15
