I m working in a private firm. We have two offices at different places. In one office there are a set of computers connected through LAN. These computers are assigned private IP addresses as given by ISP

Apart from that the ISP has also given a set of 5 public addresses. Now from the other office I want to access these computers through VPN. Please guide me the steps to setup the VPN.

For your configuration you need point-to-point VPN tunnel btw 2 locations.

Equipment depends of your budget

Top level:

Cisco Pix 501-506 series the best for small offices. most expensive. ($1000 and up) You do need to know minimum cisco basic to configure.

WhatchGuard Firebox Edge E series ($800-$1000) Web based configuration. Still expensive but easy to configure than Cisco

Entry Level:

Linksys RVS4000 series (about $250)

Netgear FVS318 series (about $250)
