    Hi Salman,

    As the systems administrator it is up to you to decide which solution
    is best for you. We can offer suggestions and try to answer specific
    questions about SUSE products. We are unable to provide detailed
    instructions about installation, even for SUSE products. That's what
    the SUSE documentation is for.

    Based on the information you provided I recommend you look at a
    Site-to-Site VPN. Choosing the best one for your situation is not
    something we can do.

    There are many products available:
    - some are commercial products
    - some are open source
    - some are appliances
    - some require software to be installed on your servers

    You need to do some research:
    - find out what products are available
    - read the documentation
    - talk to the vendor
    - decide what is the best solution for you

    Perhaps it would be easier for you if you hired a consultant to help
    with this process?

    If you still want to use your original solution then I suggest you open
    a Service Request with SUSE technical support who can help you
    troubleshoot your problem and suggest a solution.

    NetworkManager-VPN-plugins like RPM NetworkManager-openconnect (for Cisco AnyConnect VPN), NetworkManager-openvpn (for OpenVPN) or NetworkManager-pptp (PPTP) are designed for "time limited dial-in VPN tunnels" (=> RAS).

    You should replace PPTP with a secure, "always-on" VPN tunnel solution. I recommend IKEv2/IPSec. StrongSwan is an official supported IKEv2/IPSec-VPN-Client and IKev2/IPSec-VPN-Server for SLE12.

    I recommend a Site-to-Site VPN (=> vpn endpoints on two network devices). Before you configure a vpn endpoint for IKEv2/IPSec, read the vpn configuration recommendations in BSI TR-02102-3:
