I am currently running Windows 2000 server. I have a cable supplied by Optimum Online and would like to know if there is a way for me to setup a VPN connection so that I can access files from a remote location. I am using "go-to-my-pc" however there must be a better way for me to access my network. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

ah, I believe W2K server comes with RRAS. With RRAS, you can have dialup or VPN access to the network. Works. We use it here.

There are 3rd party DNS service providers which will provide IP to Name resolution for your "public" FQDN and have a client program which will automatically update their DNS servers with new IP addresses if your ISP changes it. I use for $30.00 a year. Saves the hassel of when your ISP changes your IP on ya. all you have to use is a FQDN to find your network [and everyone else on the planet if they choose to]. Works great for running your own web server as well.

How about if you are running a dynamic IP address that is supplied by the ISP?

If the server has a web page running on the internet, you can run terminal server as a web page.
There is only one files to install for this.
The file and information can be found at

If you get an appliance firewall you can get one that supports 3DES VPN's. If you have a very small network and security is not super critical you could look at D-Link (then buy another D-Link VPN firewall for home) or look at a SonicWALL or Pix and then use a software VPN client at home.
