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.

Cheers,

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).

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,
-Jon

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)
