I am itching to try this concept full on. I would love to share the experience with anyone out there that has done or tried the same thing.
At my main home, I have 4 DSR7000 DirecTV DVRs with Multi Room Home Media Options. They work fine. I can record on one TIVO and watch on another.
I have REAL DSL with fixed IP numbers and a Linksys Router
I also have a Cabin in another state, also with a REAL DSL and fixed IP numbers.
I have been thinking about getting two Lynksis BEFVP41 VPN Routers and installing them on either end.
I would then bridge my two networks together. I can easily make sure I have no IP number conflicts so all devices are on the same subnet.
Tivo at Home 188.8.131.52
Gateway at Home 192.168.0.1
Tivo at Cabin 192.168.0.76
Gateway at Cabin 192.168.0.2
Computer at Home running Tivo Desktop Server 192.168.0.5
Shouldn't this work? Would the TIVOs find each other?
If configured this way, shouldn't normal outbound internet traffic at home go out the home gateway through 192.168.9.1 and normal outbound internet traffic at my cabin gateway through 192.168.9.2?
I should also be able to file share between computers if I make there is no IP conflict with the two dhcp servers. I could have one of them only serve 100 - 150 and the other one serve 151 - 200
What is wrong with this idea?
Stop me before I waste about three days and a bunch of money...
