Connecting to my warehouse

What is the best way for me to connect to my warehouse. Both locations have a dsl with statice ip addresses. It seems to be many ways to this. I have a Windows 2003 server at my main office and a Windows 2000 server at the warehouse. I have a Netgear wireless router at the main location and a linksys vpn router at the warehouse. I am unsure if I have to do the site configuration on both servers. Also, with Bellsouth statically assigning there dsl modems, how do I hit my servers.

The solution that I am looking for is to share a database which is located at the main office with the warehouse workers so they can ship. This is my first big project at my new job, and I want to make a big impression.

Ok, depending on the traffic you'll get, you could install 2 Pix firewall at both end. Then you could create a permanent VPN Tunnel between the 2 locations. This way, you'll be able to bring your second network into your 1st, and access everything like you were there.

Here is the link to the different PIX product.. If you wont have too many people going through the tunnel, you could choose the pix 501, and if you need more, the 506E or 515.. Hmm but I think the 514 would be overkill.

Pix 501:
The PIX 501 includes an integrated 4-port Fast Ethernet (10/100) switch and a Fast Ethernet (10/100) interface. Ideal for securing high-speed broadband environments, the Cisco PIX 501 delivers up to 60 Mbps of firewall throughput, 3 Mbps of Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES) VPN throughput, and 4.5 Mbps of Advanced Encryption Standard-128 (AES) VPN throughput.

Pix 506E
The compact desktop chassis of the Cisco PIX 506E provides two autosensing Fast Ethernet (10/100) interfaces. Ideal for securing high-speed Internet connections, the Cisco PIX 506E delivers up to 100 Mbps of firewall throughput, 16 Mbps of Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES) VPN throughput, and 30 Mbps of Advanced Encryption Standard-128 (AES) VPN throughput in a cost-effective, high-performance solution.
