    I have a small network running Server 2000 with 15 XP Pro workstations. I would like to enable two laptop (XP Pro) users access to the network from home. What is the best, secure and most cost effective way to achieve this? Is VPN the way to go?

    Thanks in advance for the assistance.

    I think you clearly want a VPN for security.

    Thanks. Next question . . . Where do I start with setting up VPN? I have been reading post here and at other sites and it is a little confusing. Is there a "step by step" guide I could refer to?

    The first thing you need to do is figure out the type of VPN connectin your going to make before you go asking for step by step instructions. There is router to router, PC to router, PC to PC. There are many VPN ocnnection types you can make and many different items that supply VPN.

    How do I determine which type will work best for my situation? Office and home users all have cable connections to the internet and use routers.
