Yes the monowall will create the ipsec vpn tunnel once you create the
At the main DC site monowall create 2 seperate ipsec tunnels for the remote
At each remote network create a ipsec tunnel back to the main site network.
tunnel will have it's one seperate private network block and pre-shared key.
The setup
