Connecting two PC's at two different pre

By ashutosh.raina ·
My requirement is to connect two PC's at two different office premises,seperated at a distance of about 10 kms, with dedicated telephone line cables between them.

The data to be transmitted has to be high speed with absolutely no data loss.
I have an option of using Lease Line Modem at both the ends, but want to have a cheaper,as well as a reliable solution.

A reasonably cheap solution could be to have broadband internet access installed at each site. Cable/ASDL and they purchase two VPN routers.

http://www.draytek.com do a good range of hardware VPN routers will all sort of options including ISDN backup for reliability.

This is better than a software solution, because the two routers maintain the connection which looks transparent to the PC. All you have to do is establish the VPN connection between the two routers, for which their is a step by step guide on their website.

This may not be what you require due to the reliablity of the internet but could be a consideration. You don't even require a permanent IP address as the draytek routers support dynamic DNS.

How High is the speed requirement?
Do you have "line of sight" between stations?
If so, wireless is also a consideration.
How important is "first cost" vs. "operating cost"?
The reason I ask is, from your email address, I assume line operating cost may be high to very high.

No..there is no line of sight..
i dont want to have a wireless solution,considering the cost factor.
First Cost should be the minimum.

We have set this up using ZyXel and USRobotics equipment for customers with about the same results.
If the installation is for Medical, Bank, or Insurance use, you will have to have second, full verification transmission. (That cuts your effective speed in half.) CRC and other transmission error checks can not get better than 99.999% error free.
(Some customers choose to live with this error rate.)(Penny pinching.)

Not meeting specs?
First: You posted no numbers for those specs.
Second: Your "Specs" contradict themselves.
You said low cost option, and then expect a high end result?
You can not be that naive!
We can not produce miracles, only God produces miracles.
