Router settings for VPN connection
Posted on 2006-05-23
I currently run a small network of a Windows 2003 server and several XP workstations. All of these devices connect to the Internet through a router that provides broadband access.
I would like to be able to access my Windows 2003 server from the Internet via v VPN. I have read how I can setup Windows 2003 accordingly with remote access, etc, and my ISP has provided me with my static and reserved IP address that I can use to do this.
My question is, what do I actually need to do on the router to do this? Currently, it has an IP address of 192.168.0.1 which the other devices use as their gateway. Do I need to program the router somehow with the IP address that my ISP has provided for me so that it can be "seen" from the outside world, and then I do some sort of port forwarding to route it to my Windows 2003 server (192.168.0.100)?
Can anyone help me with some steps here please?
