Connecting clients via VPN

By glucero530 ·
I have remote computers hooked to the internet via DSL. My NT server is also linked to the ISP via DSL. I want to connect the remote clients to my network using VPN. Does anyone know where I can go to figure out how to make the links. I've gotten the IP addresses from my ISP for both computers, but they couldn't help me set it up. They did, however give me a number to a consultant of theirs who would help me out for a fee!!

Connecting clients via VPN

by McKayTech In reply to Connecting clients via VP ...

If you go to the Microsoft Technet site and search the Knowledge Base by using the keywords VPN or PPTP, a number of articles will come up that describe VPN setup and troubleshooting.

Article Q161410 has the general procedure for doing so. Thereare some minor differences depending on which Microsoft OS your clients are running, but anything from Win95 on will support PPTP if you have the 1.2 or 1.3 update for Dial Up Networking.

Hope this helps get you started...

Check the att site, we use vpn to connect our Dial-in systems from ATT to our HO via VPN. Note: the basic user side for VPN is fairly easy, this is basicly password/id & connection profile setup. Good luck- Al
