vpn networks

  hillybilly 07:47 12 Jul 2004

I have 3 pc's in the office all on Win2k peer to peer, I want to put these on B/B using a netgear DG834 router. That I can handle.

Next I want to be able to connect to the office from home using a VPN connection, but I am not sure how to go about this. Do I need some third party software? Also have B/B connection at home. Thanks for any advice.

You can set one of your Win2K pro machines to answer incoming connections, including VPN's. This is straight forward enough as there is a new connection wizard that you can follow.

You will then need to make sure that the computer you have chosen has a static IP address and is left on when you want to VPN in from home.

When you have done all of that you need to set up your Netgear router to allow the VPN traffic into your network and to NAT it to the IP address of the PC that you have chosen to answer incoming connections. You will need to NAT tcp port 1723 to the ip address of the 2000 box.

Thanks for the info that's very helpful, but do you know if I will still need some 3rd party software? I have been looking at something called wingateVPN. Does anybody have any experience of this product?

any third party stuff, don't know anything about the software that you mentioned.

Okay, Thanks, I suppose it's time to get on with it!

but apparently it will.

Looks fairly straight forward as well
