    First off, I am not a networking expert. Barely knowledgeable in fact. However, I am fairly computer literate so I can usually understand things.

    I have an office machine running WinXP Pro that acts as our server. We use a Netgear FVS318 VPN router for connections. There is no static IP yet. There are 4 office machines running XP Home that connect to the server. All that works fine. All machines see each other, we can transfer files, share printers, etc.

    I now want to set up 2 machines (desktop and laptop) for outside use. Those machines will be used by employees so they can work from home a few days a week. The desktop machine runs WinXP Pro and connects to the internet via cable modem. The laptop runs Win XP Home and connects to the internet via cable modem but the setup is wireless.

    Is there a step-by-step process or checklist I can get that will take me through the steps of setting this up? Not sure what else I need to provide or assk.
