Does VPN connection require a dedicated line?  An employee pc that connected to our Win2003 server on a Comcast simple connection does not connect since we moved him to a new location where he has a shared internet connection on a T1 line.  When I try to ping his external address from the server it times out.  I can ping other addresses from our server.  The T1 people claim there is no firewall obstructing connection on the remote employee side.  Does this mean that if we get a Comcast cable connection for this employee as he had before, the problem will be solved?
