VPN Between two XP computers
I have a Win XP Home, at home, and Win XP Pro. at work. How do I set up a
VPN between them.(Have cable at home and DSL at work with a wireless router)
I would like to be able to navigate from both computers, so that I could get
files from the other computer. Regardles if I'm home or at work. I hope that
it is possible.

See http://www.onecomputerguy.com/networking/xp_vpn_server.... for
information on how to setup the VPN server (either or both can do
this). Note that you would need to configure your router and/or
firewall to allow TCP Port 1723 and GRE to passthrough to the server
computer (see http://www.portforward.com for information on how to do
this).

Then refer to http://www.onecomputerguy.com/networking/xp_vpn.htm for
information on how to set up the client side of the VPN connection.
You will need to use the public or WAN/ISP address for the server
computer when you setup this connection.

That's about it.. Once you have the connection establish, connect to
the server computer by specifying \\IPADDRESS\SHARENAME where the
IPADDRESS is the PRIVATE or LAN address.

Thank you Jeffrey,
that should get me started, One question, does it matter who is initiating
the VPN session? Can both the server and the client start a VPN session and
is there any response needed from the client or server when a VPN session is
started.
Thank you,
John

Either machine can act as the client. You will need to specify a
valid username and password on the "server" computer and be allowed to
access via VPN (see the OCG website mentioned earlier for information
on how to add a user to be allowed to log in).

Thank you Jeffery,
I have tested it on my local network (My laptop with a wireless PCMCIA Card
and the desktop) and that works, but only when I give the 192.168.*.* address
for the server. I was wondering if that will be enough to find it on the
WWW. Or is there another setting when you are not on the same network (like
in two different cities) that has to be given. My ISP's are issuing Dynamic
IP Addresses, so there will only be the 192.168.*.* address that can be
Static.

Let us know if it works over the internet. I have been advised that it
won't.

Remote Desktop will work in your situation but only from the Pro.

You VPN from a machine that has a public address to another public
address. In most cases you will connect using your dialup or
broadband adapter with a public IP address to the "server" using its
public address.

Don't try to VPN with both sides using private addresses (like what
you describe).

When you say your ISP is providing a dynamic address, did they give
you a router/firewall device for your connection? If so, that is why
you are seeing a private address. The public IP address of the router
can be gotten by browsing to http://www.ipaddress.com.
