I want to establish a VPN connection to a remote user.

The server at the office is running Win2K server. There are 6 local nodes on that network. The server is currently configured for file sharing. There is a Linksys switching hub connected to a DSL modem everyone including the server use this to access the internet.

The remote user is running Win2K pro, connects with DSL and needs to access the office server.

How should I set this up?

on your linksys router you would need to forward port 1723 to your VPN server ( ie the winows 2000 server acting as VPN serrver )
