VPN / Remote Access setup with dynamic IP addressing
Posted on 2004-04-19
I have a client who has an office that uses a Cable internet connection. The ISP provides dynamic IPs. While the IP address is ever changing, I could never fathom how a VPN can be setup in such a manner. However, I believe I have either heard or seen seomewhere that VPN or some kind of remote access capability is possible with this type of configuration.
On the inside, the Internet connection comes across the cable modem and then over a Netgear router (don't know the model off hand, but it's less than a year old). The Netgear router then deploys internal IP addresses to all machines inside the office, one of them being the 2000 Server where the files reside.
Basically, I'm looking for an overview of what is needed to be able to setup any kind of remote access capability in this environment. This is an area that I have never dabbled in, but having been in Technology for a few years now, explanations should come to me pretty well.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
