I have a win2000 client configured PC and win2000 server configured PC, and i wish to simulate a vpn connection (either IPSec or PPTP).  
I want to know is it possible to directly connect these two machines and simulate either an IPSec VPN connection or a PPTP VPN connection?
Also what additional devices\services would be required to configure and test these two PC's?

You will need to simulate an 'inside' network and an 'outside' network...

If you have 2 hubs/switches, that would be best. Label one as inside, and one as outside. In your server you would want to have 2 network cards, one in each switch. Ideally you would have a 3rd pc to be an 'inside' host, plugged into the 'inside' switch. Assign IP addresses on the inside to be on the same subnet (ex. 10.1.1.0). Plug your client pc into the 'outside' switch. Assign IP addresses on the outside network to be on the same subnet (ex. 192.168.0.0) (but different from the inside). Then you'll need to install RRAS on the server, and you'll need to configure a PPTP VPN connection on the Win2000 client pc, specifying the outside address of the server as the VPN host to connect to. Conect to the VPN from the client, and try to access the 'inside' pc.
