I am new to this group. Seems like a great forum from I see so far. This is about VPN over cable between two sites mostly with only 6 clients at each site running windows XP or maybe 7. The clients will all be running windows. I am not sure yet if I will install Server 2008 - may not need to. Ok, that's the workstation end of thing.
I am looking at the NetGear FVS318 switch at both sites for connecting the two. I have some networking experience but not with this. So, here is wish list. Low cost, minimal latency, automatic recovery (ie; power or cable outage), and one time setup - ie; once the workstations and server(s) are set up, people don't have to do anything in terms of login to do VPN, it's just always there as if you were in a single premise and just booted up - you'd most likely only log into your windows account?
Any tips! Thanks!!! Mike
