Remote access

by TimTheToolMan In reply to Remote access

Hi,

Here is an article from Microsoft detailing how to set up VPN (Virtual Private Network) connections.

These allow you to use the internet to connect two PCs, do file and print sharing and so on, safely.

Norton PC Anywhere (version 10.0) would provide a pretty simple way to diall into another computer.

The Windows 2000 VPN feature is another option. DUN (Dial-Up Networking) lets you create a remote-access connection, assign addresses dynamically on the IPsec gateway's network and, with the addition of L2TP, carry non-IP protocols. Otherwise, you will need routable addresses between end points.

The PC Anywhere option would be much easier and less complicated to setup, but it may be morelimiting and there would be a cost involved. (About $50 per computer.) PC Anywhere actually transfers control of one computer to another.

Windows 2000 VPN, on the other hand, would provide more flexible configuration options, and since it's "built in", there's no additional cost. However, it would be more tricky to setup.

Here's a link on that topic (Setting up Windows 2000 VPN.)
