WAN VPN Setup help

Hi all,

I've got 2 sites with fixed IP addresses. Both have Win2000 Servers as file servers.  
They both have DSL connections to get to the internet.
Both sites have users that are in the same network i.e. 192.168.0.0 as is the server and have independant internet access through the switch to the router, although use the servers for DNS.

I want to configure a permanent link between the 2 sites without the cost of Cisco gear. Both sites have ISP provided modems that are configurable for port opening and forwarding.

Ideally, I would like to setup a backup system between the 2 sites for offsite backups.
Even mapped drives between the sites for users.

Any ideas?

As long as they are both have the same IP subnet, get yourself a big bottle of Excedrin because you will have multiple headaches.
A simple solution would be to get yourself a VPN router for each end and setup a LAN-LAN tunnel. Linksys has a very inexpensive one. You can even choose to enable netbios broadcasts across the tunnel.
Key here is to change the subnet at one end.
