Setting up simple VPN - Overview
Posted on 2004-03-30
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.
