I am looking for a simple VPN client for end users to use to connect to the offices remotely. I have the Intel Netstructure VPN client, but need some help with the configuration. Has anyone been able to make this work and can you help with any websites, docs, or settings I need to use.

I have tried so many different combinations that I cant remember what has been done... need some help :)

I am using a LINKSYS BEFVP41


THX!
Mike

If your client is XP or 2000, use the built in VPN support.

Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

anupnellip, have you set this up before? Will the system need to be configured every road trip or will this work while they are in the office and on their home network connecting directly to the internet?

I am looking for an application that can be setup for the notebooks that will allow them to create a tunnel back to the office from any location. They will still need to be able to get direct internet access from any location when not trying to connect to the office.

for small network, I would suggest you to look at openvpn. this is a free software and I have try it work great under windows 2000 and it should be working with XP as well. If you want to give it a try, visit:
http://openvpn.sourceforge.net/INSTALL-win32.html

It is free, secure (using SSL), easier to configure compare to IPSec and work with all model of router. You only need to open single port for each user.

You can even combine this software with ORENOSP (another great freeware), with this software your user can connect to office even when they are behind restricted proxy and all they need is http access enable. If you are interested you can find this software from:
