I have 3 computers on a LAN network. I use one computer for the server and the other as clients. I have cable as my ISP. I have a DI-624 Router. I want to be able to use my server from anywhere I am with a high speed connection. Can I run applications from my server over the internet to my client computer using a VPN? My router has VPN capability. Do I need VPN software? If not, is there a step by step server & client instruction?

Can your router act as a VPN end point or does it just allow VPN pass through?

If you're using Windows, Windows 2000/XP comes with a built in VPN client which you can use to establish a connection to a VPN server or end point.  YOu can also download it to use with Win98/ME/NT here: www.microsoft.com/windows2000/server/evaluation/news/bulletins/l2tpclient.asp.  That link also includes info about the client and links to some info about how to configure the client.  Alternatively, you can look at 'How to configure a connection to a virtual private network (VPN) in Windows XP' at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314076&sd=tech.

If you're not using Windows, you will likely have to use a third-party VPN client suitable to your OS to establish a connection.
