This can be done but to give a proper answer we need more info.
1. How does the landlord provide connectivity for the systems in the remote
2. Are they on a VLAN:
a. off his Core Switch?
b. Off of the FW device
c. Do the have their own FW device connected direct to his Internet
3. How do the users in the Remote office Authentic? Do they have their own
Domain Controller/Network or are they using the Landlords DC?
The simplest way would be to establish a site-to-site VPN tunnel in the FWs
then within those FW devices set the routing for that tunnel to be between
your HQ LAN and the 10.0.10.0 network only.
The problem with this is that it exposes your HQ networks routing info to
the landlords network. You lose security control on the CA end of the
tunnel therefore security control of the tunnel. AND open your FW device and
network to internal attack from the landlords network.
The best way would to be to have the landlord install a switch between the
ISP connection and his FW. Then you provide a FW device and a Layer 3
enabled switch that would be used to connect to your workstations only to
connect to the public switch. The landlord would have to loan you one of
his Public IP Addresses to place on your FW Device or you could ask him to
obtain an additional 8 IP address block from his ISP for your use. Offer to
pay the monthly charges for these addresses; it shouldnt be more than about
Establish the site-to-site VPN tunnel to this new FW and setup the same
routing rules. You can then build a GRE tunnel between the HQ core switch
and the new switch in the remote office to pass routing information. You
should also place a DC in the remote office to allow them to authentic and
receive network policies locally to reduce the WAN auth traffic.
