I have a new store opening tomorrow and I need to connect the computer there to access the server at my main store.
However I want to be able to connect to the accounting software from the main office and use the local printer to print my invoices

Since I only have about 10 more hours to go.....I figure at this point I wont be able to get the vpn to work, unless it is a really easy to implement software vpn and not ISA.

Do you have a solution that can help me. I really need some help here. Where can I find it and what can I download?

If you are using Windows 2k/2k3 Server, you can implement it with that fairly easy:

If it's a different OS, there is an opensource VPN:

Hope one of these helps

If your server uses routing and remote access then you will have to remove and reconfigure this for vpn.

If your server doesnt run routing and remote access then you can set it up like this:
