Connecting from home via VPN

Quick Steps to setting up VPN:

  1. Goto Start-> Control Panel -> Network Connections
  2. Click on 'Create New Connection' (On win2K it will be a icon, on winXP it will be on the left sidebar)
  3. Click next on the wizard panel that appears.
  4. On the next screen select the option that says 'Connect to Network' or something similar. (On win2k it will be the 3rd option, on XP it will be the second.)
  5. If it asks you dial-up or VPN select VPN
  6. On the next few screens it will ask for the Server Name and the Server IP address, but the order will depend on the version of windows. Just make sure the IP is set to and the name doesn't matter, you can set it to the same as the IP if you like.
  7. Finish the wizard and the shortcut will be placed on your desktop, and will also appear in the Control Panel -> Network Connections window.
  8. Double click the shortcut icon and connect using your Domain Username and Password.
