VPN Advice - Home to Office Connection - require email and files/folder access
Posted on 2005-04-05
I would like to setup a VPN connection from a home to our office.
To be honest I know very little of VPN, simply I would like my boss to be able to bring his laptop home from work, connect it to his home wireless internet (2meg internet) router and log in to the network seemlessly over the internet,
the main objective is to have full MS outlook access (i have done this by putting the IP of our office router in the POP settings, the router then points to the exchange server - problem is it only gives the inbox view wihich updates each time it is connected at home - also 2 profiles are required)
I would prefer it if outlook acted the same way it does when the laptop is connected to the LAN at the office, i.e Can see Inbox/Sent Items/Calendar etc.
Also the second objective is to have full files and folder access from our other server, again, seemless opening/editing and saving of files straight to the server.
I hope you are able to help. I have no idea of the cost, whether I need much software to carry this out. i will reply to comments and questions as soon as i can
