How to setup an iBook to access NT Domain via VPN

Currently I have several users that access our NT Domain remotely via VPN using Win98, NT and 2000. Now a couple of MAC users within the company want to access network resources remotely via VPN.

Knowing very little about MACs how, specifically, do I configure their MACs for VPN access to the network.


Thanks for the help.

I can't say that I know how the client is setup on the Macintosh but I know that if you add services for macintosh, and appletalk (even if using TCP/Ip) and create a macintosh accessable UAM volume users can access network resources as that is what I do on our network

I found an SMB client for Macintosh called DAVE (great name)

this would allow you to access SMB resources, perform domain logons, etc... from a Macintosh.  If you only have 1 or 2 mac users on your network, it might be better to push SMB functionality down to them, rather than create additional overheads on your NT servers by installing and configuring File & Print Services for Macs.
