How to set up SSH Server and Client

Hello Experts!

I have zero knowledge about SSH but have been told I can use it to establish a secure connection to my server similar to a vpn connection.

What I want to do is when I travel, is connect through SSH to my server at home and use my home server as the Internet gateway. I download very confidential emails and need a secure link to do it.

Can somebody please give me an idea on what I have to do to set up a SSH Client on my Windows XP laptop to connect to my Windows 2003 Server? Don't really know what to look for but the guides I have come across have a lot of assumed knowledge.

Thanks in advance

Bryan
