I am the Network Administrator for an organization with about 17 PCs. About half of those computers are at a branch office, using VPN “dial-up” connections on each PC through a 1.5Mb/500Kb cable connection.
This situation works for one or two people connecting, but I did not forsee that it does not work well with so many people trying to access the network remotely.
I’m trying to figure out of there is a way to connect the two LANs together, so that the computers at the branch office appear on the LAN just as if they were at the main office.
I would prefer to continue using our cable Internet connection, but if a different connection method (such as ATM or fiber leased line) must be used instead, so be it.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
