Hi all,

I want to access my office network from my home network. I'm using Debian Linux as a gateway at my office. I'm using a laptop that is running win xp pro at home. Can anyone recommend a debian VPN package that will allow me to access my office network?

OpenVPN on the Debian server with the OpenVPN client from openvpn.se on the XP system.

Just as a clarification, do you want to integrate both your home and office networks or did you just want to be able to access your office network from your laptop?

If the former, I'd have a look at this article:
