Let me explain my situation:
Currently I am making use a PTPP VPN to connect to certain remote sites connected via dialup using VNC to access desktops for support issues.
To do this I'm making use of dyndns dynamic ip service which allows me to map a hostname e.g. remotesite.dyndns.org to a dynamically allocated IP which is updated via dyndns's ip-updater which runs on the remote machine.
I'm using Windows XP's built in VPN server to accept remote connections based on the remote machine's local user accounts and allocating my own IP on the remote network as there is only 4 workgrouped desktop pc's and 1 network printer 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.5 - I generally connect as 192.168.0.77 just because I like 7 and to keep well away from the local range....
This all works well and good but my only concern is security PTPP is apparently quite easy to crack see:
I haven't tried it myself but I would prefer to try and change to a more secure protocol such as IPsec but this process seems much more difficult...
If anyone has configured a situation that is similar to mine or knows how to could you help me out as IPsec seems to go a little deeper than just VPN.
Thanks in Advance
