i have a main office site running windows 2003 domain with a linksys vpn router at the perimeter and a static ip.

i have a remote site with a timeclock that will transmit a log in or out over a port (UDP) (ethernet connection). i need to connect a harware vpn solution to have the login and out be clocked into a file at the server. there is a service software that will do so if the clock was connected to a local hub or switch provided it was in the main site. does anybody have any suggestions of the easiest solution to extend the network to the remote site, it also has a static ip.

Might be too simple but why not put another Linksys vpn router at the remote site, since you are familiar with the hardware it should be easy enough to get the vpn up and running

Or what router is on the other end?

Basically any vpn type router will work, Draytek make a few good models for this type of stuff

Yes, a VPN connection between sites sounds like the right answer.  When implemented, you have one network on two subnets.  I definitely recommend that you have exactly the same VPN router on both ends.  Even different routers from the same manufacturer might not be compatible.  What router do you have at this point?  ...RG

Here's a paper that may help.  The two site subnets must be different.
