Peer to peer office needs a VPN
Posted on 2006-05-17
I've been asked to setup a vpn for a small office (5 work stations) they want to access their office network from home or when on the road. This office is likely TO grow a little, but not much, 8 at the most. My two experiences trying to setup VPN haven't been successful. So I need idiot proof instructions every step of the way.
They are currently using 2 DSL modems, apperrently no one in the office knows what a router is much less how to configure one. I suggested they replace the 2 DSL modems with 1 cable as that should be more cost effective. They want to avoid the cost involved with purchasing a server. So I'm hoping a vpn can happen in a peer to peer environment if I get the correct router. Would $300 be enough for a desent vpn router?
I hope I'm making sense with my desciption.
