I'm new to this VPN stuff so please bear with me.
I have just installed a Netgear DG632 ADSL router on our W2k Server Network. I have plugged it into a switch on our network and my ISP has given me a static IP address.
The router came with a factory IP address of 192.168.X.X. First question i have is do i have to change this to an IP range that fits in with my current network, eg 10.27.xxx.xxx?
When i configure a laptop to connect to the VPN do i use the Static IP given to me by the ISP or the IP i give it on our Network?
When the user tries to connect to the VPN do they do this via a dial up connection?
If i am with another ISP at home & have an ADSL connection, can i use this to connect to the VPN? I have XP Home edition.
I have read a good few of the threads in this area but can't seem to find one that is simailar to what i am trying to do. Basically what i want to do is give some managers access to our network whilst they are on the road via there laptop & a VPN connection.
Thanks in advance.
