I want to add VPN access to the existing network environment and need to know the recommended
network connections.
EXISTING CONFIGS:
ISP: Covad T1 with static IP input to Samsung IBG1000, it has 2 Ethernet ports.
Netgear 3500 Router: Acts as DHCP
           * WAN port connects to one of the IBG1000 ethernet port
           * LAN ports connects to CISCO switches then to PCs (XP, Vista, Windows 7)
VOIP by 8x8 connects to the switch.

PLAN:
           * Add a Windows server 2003
           * Add VPN remote access for offsite users < 10
What equipment needed to be added? and How to connect them together?
Would appreciate your advise and guidance.

Hi

There are a lot of options for making VPN's.
You mention that you are planing to add a Windows 2003 server (Routing and Remote Access). You can use this one to set up vpn. It's quite easy to set up. You need to set up the router to forvard some ports to the 2003 server.
IT's port 1723/TCP and GRE47. Your router might refer to it as PPTP.

You could also use hardware boxes like the ZyXEL ZyWALL USG-series. That's my preferred solution. You can use them with either a browser baser SSL VPN og with software VPN-clients.
