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?

it's an office building and they say all is open on the cisco router but I think it's blocking us.  So if we get a comcast cable line we shoild be good then?
