My question is:  I'm trying to install a VPN on my network.  Is this cheaper than Terminal server?  ALso,  I am running win server 2003  and have a Cisco 1600 router going to a Symantec firewall/vpn 200  then to domain controller.  # other servers are connected to main controller.  

How do I configure the VPN?  

ISP says we have 3 static IP's.

How do I get access to the other static Ip's.  ALl my servers are subnetted and have internal ip's ( 10.0.0.?)

The licensing for a Terminal Server can get expensive.  You need the OS, and client access licenses for each user connecting.  Since you already have a Sym firewall, I would think using their VPN is the cheapest solution.

You should only need 1 static IP for your VPN tunnel to the Symantec Firewall.  What model FW do you have?
