I have a Windows 2003 small business server, which I want to access from abroad, using an XP laptop and dial-up internet. The server has two network adapters. The Internet connection is 10.0.0.1, connecting via a gateway at 10.0.0.138 with NAT. The internal network is 192.168.0.xxx via the other adapter, with DHCP on the server.
What do I need to do to allow access to the server via VPN, and what do I need on the Laptop? Can I use PPTP, which I believe is easier to pass through the router?
I am considering replacing the simple internet router with a Netgear ProSafe VPN router, which supports VPN access rather than pass-through, would it make access easier?
