"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need to give more descriptions.
OS of the server
OS of the laptop
VPN type, namely PPTP, Cisco, Checkpoint...

VPN is usual from laptop to server and not the other way around - are you asking about remotely control the laptop from the server?

ok, let's try this again.  I need to have an outside laptop link to our Server  to do inputing of files.  We are useingCisco.   I have already created a VPN on the laptop, but at this time the user cannot login to the system.  I am sorry if this sounds untechnical, but this is all I know.

We have solved this problem, we had set up the VPN correctly, the employee did not have their wireless device set up right.
