Today I setup a network at work. Then my boss asked me if he could access the network from home. I figure that you can. I just don't know how. I have heard of vpn but really don't know anything about it. Is it software I have to download? Basically we just want to be able to add our computers at home to the network at the office. Any help would be great. thanks.

Bone up on security before you attempt this otherwise you will be putting not only the office computers at risk but all the home computers.

Also, you better have a good connection via the internet because VPN is not normally very speedy.

If you just need to access your computer then your better off using RDP and creating secure connections.

Thanks. I think RDP will do the trick.

I've actually tried to go ahead with the vpn. But I don't think I've been successful. I'm not sure what the problem is. I'm trying to connect from home to the office. Which IP address do I need to put in. I have information on the vpn server at the office. I have the WAN local address, the LAN IP address, and the peer address. Which one do I need to put in to connect? I've tried all of them and I get an error 800. As you can see I'm lost. any help would be great. thanks

You could give Ultra VNC a look. It has some nice features and is designed with security in mind. If you like it please donate to the project.
