I'm trying to establish a VPN from my clients office to his home! He has a netgear router, broadband connection on each end. I can establish remote management on the router and communicate with it from his home, but I can't seem to get onto his network.. what am I forgetting or doing wrong???

If you can access the router you might now need to set up port forwarding, or DMZ if you want all traffic to get through.

I think VPN will only pass some protocalls, perhaps not NETBIOS?

My next step would be being able to ping the target computer.

This sounds a bit backward, usually one VPN's from home into the office network. In order to do the opposite, the home location needs to have something capable of hosting a VPN connection from a client, this is normally called a VPN server, but with all the SOHO options out there, I wouldn't be suprised if the broadband box had that ability.

If a VPN server of any sort is available at the home, then it's just a matter of configuring the VPN server software and any firewalls that lie between the two endpoints (client and server). Note the office router could be a client...
