Setting up a VPN through Windows XP boxes only? Is it possible?
Posted on 2003-11-02
I've got a question here, is it possible to have just Windows XP computers use VPN? I guess I would like to setup one of them as the server to connect to, then allow maybe about 5 other people to connect to it. I don't have any software, but I use Smoothwall as my router/firewall, and it has an option for VPN in it, but I cannot seem to find much info about how to set it up. Do I need extra software running on the machine to allow remote connections? I've been reading about people with Windows Server OS's that turn on RAS to allow connections, but I would preferr to stay away from that. I am very much a beginner at this so any help is appreciated. Thanks.
