Hi I'm trying to get my parents house and hoiday home to connect through a vpn so he can still do his work whenever my mom ain't watching or taking his laptop so he should rest :) And what I want to nkow is is it possible with just two xp or 2k machines? They have DSL at both sides but the routers ain't special VPN enabled routers. Would I need to get a server OS in ther somewhere or what? Thank you kindly

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you want a VPN you will need server software as XP or WIN 2k Professional do not support VPN’s. However, you could use remote desktop on the XP computer or Terminal Services in Remote Admin mode on Win 2k and a terminal services client on a Win 2k machine to connect to the XP machine. XP comes with a built-in terminal services client.

    You may want to look at RealVNC (used to be openVNC). http://realvnc.com/ is the new home. I had great success on 200 with OpenVNC before they were orphaned. So you may have some good luck with RealVNC. -pete.

    pcAnywhere - neither machine needs to enable 'file/printer sharing', builtin encryption, simple setup. VPN's dislike dynamic IP adresses on the host end. VNC basically works the same way, but the setup is definitely 'pro level'.
