Can You VPN in to a DHCP Address?

I set up a new PC in my office, and I'm unable to VPN in.
I can however, VPN in to the server and my old workstation.

I went onto the Server and saw that my address (let's say .37) is a leased address.
DCHP <----right?

I'm kinda of a defunk system administrator...and not sure if I can change this remotely or not,
as I won't be in the office tomorrow?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

thanks powercram - I forgot about the dang firewall.

I can remote into my old workstation (.56) from my new workstation (.37),
so Remote Desktop is on (I'm assuming)

Heya,
Remote desktop is definitely switched on for your old computer, but your new one may not be. To switch it on, right click My Computer and switch to the Remote tab up the top. Then check the bottom check box, something along the lines of "allow users to connect remotely"
