How do I setup a VPN using Router (D-Link DI-824-VUP) as 'server' and win XP Pro 'Client'

need configuration

Since the 'non-Server' editions of win XP and 2000 don't support VPN using Windows functionallity, I am using a Router (I choose the D-Link DI-824-VUP for this test) to be the 'Server'.

Due to cost limitations I would like to use the ability under win XP,2000 to link to a VPN for the 'Clients'

How do you do this.  Since this is a basic setup, what size limitations do you have.

WinSupplyChain,

I am not sure I understand your description.

Win 2K and XP desktops have the capability to be VPN clients. They do not directly have the capability to "Serve" VPN connections to other clients (I will admit that I have not tried this using Internet Connection Sharing).

You should be able to use PPTP to connect to an outside server through your DLINK without any special provisons at the DLINK. If you want to connect inbound TO the desktop, you may have an issue, but it depends on more detail. If you are merely attempting to connect to your home machine securely, I suggest that you take a good look at the Remote Desktop Client (RDP). Note that many firewalls are restricted for VPN traffic, but permit RDP.

I hope that the above is helpful.

Do you have a 'Hello World'  (basic start) example on a this configuration.

router handles 'the server'
OS (network connections) 'the client'


Also Remote Desktop is a good idea.  I have another question posted actually (see below).  Can you run a Application (such as the Access Run-Time) over RDP not on the client, or see the other computer's desktop, or network a drive letter?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
