Here's what I need to do. I have a file server at work that I need to be able to allow our employees to access the files when they are traveling. I know the server's ip address and know how to port forward and how to share certain folders thru windows, but this is all new territory for me.

I know there are some networking gurus on tom's so if you have the time to provide some advice I'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

there is a software base solution like Hamachi available; however, the more common way to deal with the situation is using a VPN

I read up on it a little. Is there a guide to setup a VPN using Win7?
