VPN between 2 sites using 2wire Officeportals at each end
Posted on 2005-04-02
We have a remote site that will need to access a folder for a point of sale system, basically a shared database that works via simple windows file sharing. our remote store will need to access a PC at the main location. at the suggestion of the software vendors, we have upgraded to to SBCDSL's static IP service, and they have provided us with 2wire officeportals for this purpose. The machines are all Windows XP Pro, and our thoughts are to use XP's vpn support, and we have been told that the 2wire devices will allow this. What we are missing is effective documentation on how to make this happen, both for the settings for the routers, as well as setting up the VPN in XP. If someone out there could point us to a resource that would help us set this up it would be much appreciated. Thank you very much and if anyone needs more information, just ask!
