PAQ'd and points NOT refunded (although PigeonStriker's comments sound great, Wandering_Wizard poses a question on it's use that would be relevant to solving this questioner's problem so Therefore I cannot be certain it is indeed an answer that would have helped dominic5.  However, dominic5 did not respond whether it did or did not, so I can not be certain it wasn't answered either, so dominic5 gets charged the points and this will remain PAQ'd)

Yes, you should be able to find software to do that on 2000 - not sure if 2000 professional has vpn software out-of-the-box...

Of course 2000 pro will do RAS (client and server) - hell, even 98se would do that.

in the network connections, make a new connection and choose "accept incoming connections"
2k pro can only accept 1 connection at a time.
on the other machine, make a new network connection and choose "connect to a private network through the internet"

PigeonStriker,
When I have tried to do this in the past (on a couple of machines) I just get options to setup the connection for IRDA, parallel, and modem, nothing over my network card or vpn?

Can you give any more details

Pigeon's comments sound familiar - I think it's a RAS thing - you have to allow incoming connections over the VPN adapter in the RAS settings (or something like that - been a couple years since I played with it, so I defer to Pigeon).

Cheers,

I think you probably know by now what I'm going to say...

No way - this one was clearly in the original poster's court - as mentioned previously, laziness (or reticence to award pts) should never be rewarded.

I recommend a split between Pigeon and myself (or you can give it all to Pigeon, if you want).  If you wanna delete after that, feel free.

Cheers,
