I have two computers. One in Fl, one in Il. I have high speed comcast cable modems on both. How do I set them up as Networked Computers in order to see them in the network neighborhood?

Both are running on Win98 SE. NT

You can if you use something like a VPN or if you aren't concerned about security just use file and printer sharing and open it up to the world. I suggest the VPN solution.

Thanks Rockn for the positive feedback!

EDIT}> I have read the Help Files on VPN thru Win 98 SE.
EDIT}> I discovered the method to connect to Corp LAN.
EDIT}> I am in need of method to setup the Lan to receive the EDIT}> VPN connection.

Is Virtual Private Networking a product that is included with OS or is it a product I must purchase? ANS: Included with Win98

We actually have 4 computers on a Lan but also have one computer outside the Lan. Very similar to bluemike question.

Our Lan is on a Firewall Router Belkin 4 Port wired to a Comcast Cable Modem.

The Outside Computer is on Comcast High Speed Modem.

Thanks, NT

The message below is what I get upon attemping to log in to host computer. What must I do to prepare the host computer to make the VPN connection?

"The remote computer refused the VPN connection. Please try again latter. If this problem persists, check with your network administrator."

All suggestions are welcomed! nt.
