Remote Access to my Home Network

By Loadmaster ·
Hello!
I'm a PC tech that's trying to set up a home network with Remote Access capabilities. I.E. I want to access my home network from my work.

Being new at this I'm flyin blind here. Plus...I don't want to have to wade through volumes of tech manuals to find out how to do this. Is there a step by step book, white paper or something of the like that can help me understand how to set up the whole thing?

Or, can anyone write me to tell me how to do this?

I have a W2K Network with Advanced Server. Clients are NT and W98. (3)
I have a DSL connection and the network runs behind a Linksys 4 port router with DHCP enabled on the router.

Finally, I want to set up the router with 2 segments. Flyin blind here too.

Any help wouldbe appreciated.
Thanks...Paul - pminer@bellsouth.net

Set up RRAS on your Win2KServer, and set it up as a VPN server.

For info, read this:

For remote access you could try:

Netop
PcAnywhere

To segment the network into two you could use subnetting then 1 segment would be on one subnet and the other segment on another. (each segment would have a different subnet mask). Or you could buy a multi segment hub and connect it to the router and the clients to the hub, or 2 switches connected to the router would do the same thing.

there are two ways, one is creating a vpn server and log in as a client to server and do what ever u like. before that you have to create a rras server in win2k and configure it as vpn server.

other one is installing terminal service in win2k server and setup ts client in your office desktop and connect directly from your office to your win2k server at your house. if you have any clarifications in this post it. i can get back to you.

i hope this will help you.

I would install Terminal Services on the Advanced server in Remote Administration mode. Then set up a special access rule on the DSL Router that allows your IP range at work to Terminal service into the W2K server. From there you should be able toget to anything on the network. Terminal services is fast, secure, and included in the software(FREE). Terminal services uses tcp port 1494 which you would allow through router. Terminal services is setup in add/remove programs:windows components
