Hi, we currently have a small network with 14 users, 2 win 2003 servers which are connected to the interent through a Netgear VPN fvs318v3 router (which is connected to a cable modem) and all users, servers and router are network through a DELL PowerConnect 2708 switch. We only recently purchase the router and Netgear VPN client software to introduce remote access for staff, but have been unable to get connected. All users can access the internet through the router but we cannot access remotely. Is there a particular way the router needs connected to the network to get it working?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Is one of the servers an SBS server?  If so use the built-in RRAS connector.  

If not you have my sympathy.  I tried the Netgear VPN client software a couple years ago and didn't have much luck.  It was really inconsistent.  One thing I can tell you is that if you have tried to get it working and it has messed up somewhere along the line the best thing to do is start completely over with the VPN setup.

Sorry to not be much help.  Just trying to save you some unwanted struggle with VPNs since there are so many better options out there.

Good luck.
