Ive done a search on VPN info. here but my question is pretty specific. I actaully have 2 questions. First; I bought a netgear FVS318 firewall router for a very small business. They dont have anyservers just a main computer with file sharing. I need to hook up all the computers (4 total) to internet through the router and then provide VPN access for 1. Do I need seperate software for that, or can I set it up through the XP network wizard? Netgears site isnt too clear on it. Secondly, (and I think this is more basic than Im thinking,I just forgot) when I have all the computers plugged into the router can I set up file sharing between all of them? All but 1 will have xp,the other will have 98. Oh one more thing, is the router(or any router) auto sensing for the cables, or do I need specific cables,right now 2 of the computers are connected with crossover cables,but someone told me once that the cable didnt matter that the router would set the cable to what it needs to be. ????
