I run our VPN at our company.  I've found VPN works better with MTU's on the clients, the interfaces, the links - everything set at 1430.

I'd recommend using 3DES Encryption or AES if you have it.  I guess you're going to use a shared key for authentication.

What else do you nee to know?

Is this his business?  Or does he just work there?  Do you need to get authorization from anyone at "the office" to attach a device to their network?  Security approvals?

It's a lot like setting up routers to talk to each other - it's almost the same - just NATting (maybe), authentication, and encryption methods.  Main thing is making sure your settings are the same on both ends.  Are you in Germany or Europe?  These seem to be European based on the only website I could uGooglize.  Are they routers or VPN concentrators/endpoints?
