I am a software developer for a small company, and I need to set up a VPN for my office network.
I want to be able to access the office network from home, almost as if I am plugged in directly. I need access to several servers and other network resources. Is it possible to do this?
For example, I work with Subversion, and would like to be able to commit my source code from home, without the need to change repository URLs or stuff around with any other such things. It needs to be completely transparent. I believe that this is what VPN was created for?
How can I set this up for under $150? I don't have a dedicated machine to surrender as a VPN box. However, I do have a Windows Server 2003 box where my source code is sitting. Do I set up VPN on this box, through Windows? Do I need to purchase additional hardware/software? My broadband router supports something called "VPN passthrough".
Thanks in advance.
