I need VPN setup information for win xp pro
Posted on 2004-08-19
I have a workgroup with 3 users running xp pro on the workstations. I also have a stand alone server running ntsmallbusiness 4.0 that I am serioulsy considering reconfiguring with xp pro as I really dont need a domian server as it is only used as a common file storage area anyways.
I have an employee who will be at home for a few months following her pregnancy and I would like to know what I need to setup a VPN between her home and my business.
We both have broadband sevice. I believe she has xp home at home.
I know nothing about vpn but sounds like it is what I need. I dont know, maybe I need some software as well like pcanywhere etc?
I need to know the overall picture, what hardware and or software I need to buy and how to configure it. I do have basic networking knowledge so I am hoping someone can walk me through this. It is my desire that she can run the programs on her pc at work from home without installing the programs on her home pc. I would like for her to sit at home and control her work pc as if she was really at work.
