Jeepskate: Thanks for the info on the Linksys BEFVP41, never heard of it before. After reading it I still like the Netgear FVS318, which I have installed at a few dozen locations including my home and office. 70 Tunnels vs 8 is a pretty big difference, though!
PB: I would *guess* you work at a small engineering shop and one of the engineers set up a DSL. Is that engineer still there? Ask him/her if he/she bought a additional router for security and/or internet connections. That would be your best place to start as far as a VPN is concerned.
Another option: Remote computing.
1. Do you have a server, if so, windows 2000 server?
2. If you have no server, just share files between each other's machines (and) leave the machines on all night?
You could run software which allows you to remotely control your machine from home. The files stay there, you can print to the printers in the office, and it *can* be easier to set up.
If #1, then Microsoft Terminal Services
is an option. It (sort of) comes with windows 2000. More complex to set up, but more secure.
If #2 Then try Go to my Pc
though it is a subscription-basis. Stop groaning Jeepskate-it is the easiest to set-up.
