How do i setup a VPN??
Posted on 2004-11-30
i am a complete novice when it comes to setting up a VPN. i really dont know where to start or what program I use to connect. At the moment To connect to the office servers remotely I am used to PC Anywhere, but it makes our network too vulnerable, so I had to take it off. In addition to this i bought the Netscreen Firewall 5GT.
A bit of back ground information.
In our office we currently have a Netscreen 5GT firewall with a 1MB internet connection
The office External IP Address is: eg, 188.8.131.52
Servers internal IP addresses are: eg,
S1 - 192.168.111.111
S2 – 192.168.222.222
S3 – 192.168.333.333
I can connect to the firewall via the browser and edit any settings. Or if necessary I can open a telnet session to connect to the firewall.
At home I am running Windows XP Professional
External IP Address is: eg, 184.108.40.206
Can someone please take me through Step by Step on how to configure a VPN for remote access.
