Hello, I have just moved my company into a leased facility where I will be using the same T1 line for Internet access as the other business there. The T1 line comes with VPN services and a static IP. I have a server with Windows Small Business Server 2003 installed. Can I setup a network of just my computers and hardware on a router and use the existing network there to provide Internet access and VPN services to just my router while keeping my network secure from the other users outside of my network?  Thanks in advance.

Yes why not, choose a different ip addressing scheme and lets say this is how it is;

Internet----Router----Firewall---------------------------Other Company
                                               |
                                               |
                                          Your Network

If you introduce a network device inbetween then great.

Cheers,
Rajesh

Thanks for the reply. Will there be any conflicts with DHCP servers? I plan to have all devices on my network as static addresses but leave the DHCP server enabled on the router to accept wireless connections from certain notebooks. Also do you think VPN connections will be able to negotiate the path through both routers? Thanks again.

As part of your operations, you need to have the other facility guys enable access to your network. Which means allow for natting and allow for vpn if any.

Now if you have another network device between your network and their network, everything is pretty local to you and there isn't going to be any dhcp problems.
