I need to install a VPN to connect a laptop back to the office network.
Client (laptop) and Server will both be W2K machines.

I’m looking for advice on how easy (or difficult) it will be to install and set up, and what problems I might get.

Is it fairly self explanatory to get running?

And also any recommendations for which VPN software is a good choice?
