The tealeaves are a little murkyÖ Just what do have in the way of hardware and software on those networks and what kind of Internet connection do you have at both ends? Larry

You would need Win 2K a server with a static (permanent) IP address at one end to do a VPN. You could try this: http://winfiles.cnet.com/howto/peercon.html. Let me know if it works, OK? Larry

Well, I havenít setup a Win 2K server here. Like Windows NT, which Iím still using, Win 2K server has more security features; with IIS, it can be an Internet server; and has a VPN server. A list of features is at http://microsoft.com/windows2000/guide/server/features/default.asp. Larry
