Appletalk VPN configuration????

By MCSE75 ·
I am hoping to create an Appletalk VPN over the internet so that my Mac Clients can see our file and exchange server from our second office without having to use a POP mail account. We have Cisco 1720 VPN routers at both locations, which connect offices together with an encrypted tunnel over the internet allowing PC clients to see both locations as 1 network, currently exchange server is located at location where Mac clients reside. I want to move the exchange server to the other location have Mac clients connect via the vpn rather than through an unencrypted POP connection over the internet. I would like to know how to configure the routers to encapsulate and route appletalk. I think this can be accomplished by adding a second tunnel to the router, I just don't know the right commands to get it to work.

I don't think that can be done.
What I would do is put a product called DAVE on the MAC clients. It allows MACs to communicate with NT servers via NTB (NetBIOS over TCP/IP).
This would allow you to use your existing IP VPN tunnel.
I think EtherTalk (Appletalk over Ethernet) is an evil protocol.
I know it's not the answer you were looking for but that's how I'd architect it.
