Good Morning All,


I have a general question for everyone, if you were tasked with setting up a home to office VPN, for one computer how would you go about setting it up?


We have tried logmein, but it is not exactly what they are looking for, they want to be able to go home, plug computer into home office, and connect to the VPN and use the computer as if he was sitting in the office.


I know nothing about VPN and have tried a few solutions, but no luck, I do not know the proper settings to get everything to connect.


Our network and computer specs are as follows;


Windows 7 Pro Laptop


Router: Netgear VPN Firewall Router FVS318g


We tried the Netgear VPN Client software but it is too unstable and even the support line said all of the settings are right and should work, but isn't.


Any insight and step by step guidance would be greatly appreciated, please feel free to ask additional questions about network setup.


Also, they do occasionally travel and would like to be able to connect from hotels as well, so I don't think a router to router VPN will be the best option.


Thanks in Advance!!

Windows 7 is set up to create outbound and inbound VPNs: http://www.pcworld.com/article/210562/how_set_up_vpn_in_windows_7.html

This should work when they're on the road as well.
