Hello All,

I am sure that this has been asked before, but..

Is there a way of creating a VPN Server on a windows 2000 Professional computer?

I know it can be done on Windows 2000 Server, but dont have it..

I normally use a VNC link but its a bit slow at times especially when I have a lot of information on the screen.

I have seen it done once by our IT chaps at the last company I worked at, but cant remember how they did it.

Any pointers?

Many thanks

Darren

Right-click My Network Places, and then click Properties.

Right-click Make New Connections, and then click New Connection to start the New Connection Wizard.
Click Next.

On the Network Connections Type dialog box, click Accept Incoming Connections, and then click Next.

On the Devices for Incoming Connections dialog box, do not select any device, only click Next.

On the Incoming Virtual Private Connection dialog box, click Allow Private Connections, and then click Next.

On the Allowed Users dialog box, select or add all users for whom you want to enable access. The accounts have to exist on both computers that are involved in establishing the VPN connection.

On the Networking Components dialog box, make sure that TCP\IP, File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks, and Client for Microsoft Networks are listed as networking components, and checked.

Now select TCP\IP and click properties button.

Check Allow users to access network if you want dial in users to have access to the LAN through the VPN. Now either select the DHCP option if you have a DHCP server on teh LAN or then enter a static ip pool to be assigned to the VPN clients. Click NEXT.

On the Completing the Network Connection Wizard dialog box, the connection name is "Incoming Connections" by default and the name cannot be changed. Click Finish.
