It really depends on which vendor and solution you choose to go with.  Do you have any ideas on which VPN appliance you wanted to put in place?  That would definately help us provide more insight.

I guess I'm looking for ideas as well on the easiest way of setting up VPN for our company.  Right now I use VPN that is through WINDOWS SBS 2003.  Would like a quick and reliable option that doesn't take to much know how to setup.  I am an intermediate level for computer knowledge.

Were thinking about a separate device for the VPN or would you like to have it combined with a firewall? What hardware (firewall/router) do you currently have? Perhaps that's already able to be used as a VPN device as well.

I found out through the guys that setup our network and server that Firewall/router cannot be used as a VPN.  To answer your question all I want it to do is VPN.
