VPN - Setting up a IBM Laptop running Windows XP to connect to a Windows 2000 Server
Posted on 2004-08-31
We have a Windows 2000 Server for our office network. We have 10 computers connected, and we store most of our data on this server. My boss needs to connect to this information while on the road using Cox Dial-Up or AOL Dial-Up. The server is behind a LINKSYS BEFVP41 Router and a 3COM 3300 XM Switch. We use a Cox Cable modem for our internet connection, and the XP Laptop can see the network fine as long as it is plugged into the LAN. We use Softremote LT, and we have successfully set up a VPN for a Dell Windows 2000 Laptop. But on the XP Laptop, the network is unavailable. The laptop appears to be connecting to the VPN, but you just can't see anything.
I was hoping someone could give me some ways to get this thing working properly. Also, please let me know if I left out any details because I am not the greatest with networking.
