Ok, I know this is probably in this message board somewhere, but I don't browse here a lot as I have been recovering from multiple back surgeries (makes it hard to sit at my PC). I would appreciate any help you guys can provide. I own an electronics company and will gladly sell items at cost to anyone who helps me with this process (over 1.2million items!!!)
Here is the issue. I am going to be traveling looking for jobs and housing. I have 6 PC's at my home office that are networked to a 1GB 3COM switch and the switch to a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. I don't have the password anymore, so if that is needed (which I'm sure it will be to change the settings), I'll have to reset it with the pin button on the back..
Currently I have 3 XP Pro box, 2 Server 2003 Enterprise edition, 1 server 2003 Database. DHCP is off. I can use Azureus, so there is traffic going in and out of the router.?.
It's been a long time since I've setup a VPN. I have my Static IP 4 my home office. I have the network addy's for my computers. I use remote desktop from all of my PC's so they have that enabled already. I know the admin PW's to all computers and the usernames/PW's to all PC's/servers.
Now, how do I set the router up to allow me to access my PC's from and external IP? Does the other computer have to have XP PRO or server? Can I do it with XP Home? I'm not sure what computers I'm going to be able to use as my laptop just had a drink spilled on it by my GREAT girlfriend
So, Where do I start? What do I need to do to make sure this is going to work right? Any suggestions b4 I leave for vacation?
BTW, I WANT TO BE ABLE TO CONNECT VIA RDC TO MY COMPUTERS IF IT IS POSSIBLE!!!
Thank you very much for any advice you can provide! I'm leaving tomorrow night, so I don't have much time. I just found out about this trip yesterday... :4-dontkno
