Hello:

Can anyone help me get started setting up VPN on my 2003 Server? If anyone can get me started, I can take it from there.

Thanks,

Magus

you could write a book on the subject--in fact, there are many. Getting you started without any knowledge of your network is almost like asking, I want to build a car, how should I start?

Here's a primer, but it assumes some basics that may not be applicable to your network

Thank you for the reply. As it turns out, configuring a VPN is the least of my worries. My company, a Casino, was trying to use Thin Clients in desks and kiosk machines out on the casino floor. Before Katrina, we had a lot of problem with hard drives giving out because of the heat. Now we are rebuilding our network from the ground up. We opted for thin clients insttead of workstations for the casino floor. After fooling around with two different models today, we finally realized these guys aren't going to do what we need them to do (VPN or not).

I'm too busy right now to follow your link, but have made note of it for my records. I'll be sure to read up on the subject in my free time.

Thanks. :whistling:

its not much of a link....just a thumbnail sketch...I had no idea how complex a network you were addressing...I was thinking you just wanted to access a server from home

Your looking at a much bigger job then that
