Hi

Would be great if i could get some help setting up remote access to my office network.

We have a small office network which is based in a office complex, we have our own private subnet with an ip range of 10.2.67.2   --   10.2.67.254. on which we run pcs and macs and printers.

We have been provided the following Information and told that vpn is activated for our office, but have no idea how we do it or go about setting it up.

Private Subnet
Net mask = 255.255.255.0
Gateway = 10.2.67.1
DNS 1 = 135.196.xxx.xxx
DNS 2 =  154.32.xxx.xxx
SMTP relay = 194.42.xxx.xxx
DHCP: Enabled, Range 10.2.67.100 -- 10.2.67.250

VPNS
First usable ip: 194.42.xxx.xxx
Last usable ip: 194.42.xxx.xxx
Gateway: 194.42.xxx.xxx
Network: 194.42.xxx.0/25
Netmask: 255.255.255.128

Routing:
SELECTOR: group - Bronse
SERVICE: All
VIA: any route
QOS: bronze
INPUT BURST OUTPUT BURST


Many Thanks

Your system administrator had assigned you some "real" IP addresses i.e. addresses that are available from any internet station.
This configuration called NAT and it is enabled for all nodes (PC printer or mac) within the IP range 10.2.67.100 -- 10.2.67.250
After you defined a NAT address to a specific host (for example 10.2.67.100 gets 194.42.xxx.1)
You can connect it from outside the office

You should ask your administrator to attach the NAT IP (say 194.42.xxx.1) to the target host at the office.
Then you can connect from home to the office host using any method you have there (remote desktop, pc-anywhere, vnc, etc')
