I don't get this: Windows supports vpn connections but we still have to install another vpn client. Why?
So how would I go about setting up a VPN between my home computer an a random computer at my school then?
The VPN client in windows is fine, much better than that Cisco POS IMO.
Give us some more details if you want an answer, what OS is each, which direction do you want the connection (connect to home from school etc) are there any firewalls/NAT routers in the way and so on?
From a school computer, I would like to be able to connect to my home PC to have access to my home files.
I have both XP SP2 Pro and Vista RC1 installed on my computer, so it would be really nice if you guys would tell me how to do it with both.
I'd use Hamachi, but I don't have install privlages on most computers in the school, and besides that the hard drives get reset every time the computers are restarted.
