Greetings,

I'd like to set up a connection between two offices, the second office office requires to see a shared drive on a server and print to a large format printer in the first office.  I assume the best way to do this is VPN.

I'd like to set up a vpn enabled router at each end.  Is this the best and most straightforward way to go?

I am familiar with Linksys routers, I know they are inexpensive, will a proper linksys router be ok for this purpose?  There are less than 6 total users in both places.  Would it be better to get a more expensive firewall/router device?

Do I need fixed ip addresses at both ends?

Am I overlooking anything here?  These are Mac networks at both ends but I don't think that will make any difference.

Thank you.
