VPN Server Solution
Posted on 2011-09-20
Im looking into a VPN solution which can facilitate the following.
I have a client office with a file server and db server (windows based) with a few client xp machines.
Recently, we have opened a small remote office which has its own internet connection with one user. This user would like to connect to the office and access the network resources.
Initial though was a simple Windows VPN Server setup using one of the server in the office but this required me putting the server into the DMZ (the main office only has a simple BT Business Hub) and configuring security certificates etc.
Is there any open source software out there which could be installed onto one of the servers/pc in the office which can accept inbound connections from the remote client without the need for certificates/tricky configs etc?
I looked at OpenVPN but the config file got me beat - bit to complex.
