VPN

You can use your existing Remote Desktop Connection on both PCs. Set up the HOST pc to be able to receive incoming connections. You will need to contact your office's IS/IT dept for the REAL IP of your system (not one assicgned by routers or switches -DHCP-) and to open any firewall ports (if any) so you can get in from the outside.

Go to System Properties > Remote tab > Remote Desktop Section, and check "Allow Users to connect to this computer".

Please know that most companies will not let you do this without authorization, and that (without modifications) you can only have ONE session connected to that XP machine.

Hope this helps.

you will have 2 configure & enable routing & remote access on server. While configuration u will also have 2 check for ip address provided to the pc through dhcp which u want 2 make vpn client.

After that go 2 remote access policy>microsoft routing>check grant remote access. Also allow access for ur user by navigating to properties of that user, select dial-in tab>allow access.

On client pc configure a vpn connection.

Hope this works.

what resources are you wanting to connect to from home?? If you use the Remote Desktop thats been suggested that would only work if both PCs are turned on at the same time.

theres no easy way around it unless your IT department sets up a VPN at your office, that would allow you to access your emails at home and the companies network drives :)
