VPN Setup with Server 2003
Posted on 2006-10-29
I would like to setup a new VPN using a VPN gateway capable router. We currently have a static IP and Server 2003 in the office where the VPN endpoint will be.
I would like to use a router and equipment I can buy at a retail location. Is there equipment that sets up more easily than others or that someone can walk me through the setup?
I have never done this before. We would like to have a network date file from the HQ location available at anther office location using our broadband connection like a mapped network drive. Both locations have high speed internet. The remote location will only consist of one user using XP Professional.
I'm family with Remote Desktop connection but I'm not familar with the setup of the router or if there's a necessary setup on the server.
I currently have a xincom XC-DPG603 (Twin WAN DNS-to-IP VPN Gateway) if someone is familiar, but I am not against getting another piece of equipment if it's easier or more easily managed. I don't know anything about the xincom, so I'm not much help there.
I appreciate any help. Thanks.
