How do I setup a NetGear VPN? (FVS114)
Posted on 2006-05-04
I've got a netgear FVS114 VPN router and want to setup a VPN so that people can connect to it and be able to copy files back and forth. Effectively, what I want to do is be able to do file sharing through the VPN.
1st question: Do I have to get NetGears ProSafe client to connect to the netgear VPN? I'd prefer to just use Windows to do the connecting if at all possible.
2nd question: How do I set this thing up properly? I was assuming that since clients would be connecting that I'd have to setup usernames and passwords and all that, but I don't see anyplace in the policies to do that.
3rd: Ultimately we'd like to connect to the VPN and then run our quickbooks over it so that the auditors file and the bookkeepers file are always the same. Is this feasible? I'm not convinced that the performance will be all that acceptable, but it's what they want to do to prevent further issues where the auditor corrects something and the bookkeeper keeps using the older, incorrect file.
