Hi,

I'm new at VPN setup procedures though I have many years of experience in pc repair, I've never had the chance to set up a VPN server.

Here's my W2K server info:

IP: 192.168.1.9
SM: 255.255.255.0
Domain: marcomnet.svr
Router: Linksys dsl/cable router

Now, do I need to register a DNS adress? How can my VPN clients find my server marcomnet.svr if its not registered with the registrar?

Like I said I need step by step procedures for the server setup, please use the computer jargons and no need to elaborate on the procedures so much, as said before I'm a PC and server technician and as funny as it sounds I've never played around with VPN!!

Thanks in advance!

Mario

Does your Linksys dsl/router support VPN end tunnels?  VPN is end to end... You want to set the VPN end-point on the router.

1) Determine and setup your IPSec encryption.
2) Determine and setup your authentication.
3) Setup your key (end-point must agree on type of encryption and data).
4) You can register your domain - IPSec uses FQDN - or use DDNS....
5) You can specifiy which traffic requires encryption

The client will be the other end point...
1) Client needs to setup VPN end point.
2) Use same key when access your end-point
3) ISAKMP and IPSec will take care of the rest.

cheers
