I couldn't agree with you more. I was originally testing
Internet access for Native Outlook users. But my longterm
was always going to be VPN. I have to setup VPN for
Windows2000 clients on the go, and also VPN IPSec for
firewall/routers from one site to another. It will be
time consuming, but it's all worth the effort. I'll let
you know if I need more advise.
Thanks for the guidance.
