    I am not quite sure where to post my topic.

    I have recently purchased 2 wrv54g vpn routers for two locations of our business. I have read the linksys manual and have been in touch with technical support but I am not getting far but I am slowly understanding what I need to do but I am far from knowing everything. I wanted to describe my scenario to see if i am going the right way.

    Site 1 - I have 12 workstations all running XP Pro. I have, high speed internet with a static IP Address. At Site 1 location I have given the internal IP Addresses starting with 192.168.2.XX for all my workstations

    Site 2 - Is on an Island and I only have 2 workstations running XP Pro. I have high speed satellite internet service with a dynamic IP Address. At Site 2 location I have given the internal IP Addresses starting with 192.168.3.XX for all my workstations.

    My Goal is to creat a VPN Tunnel from Site 2 to Site 1(known address). At site 2 there is a computer where I eventually want to see the desktop so I can run a particular program. I want to be able to do this from my home. So I guess my internal ip address for my computers at home will 192.168.1.xx.

    My first question is a VPN just for network shares or can you actually view a desktop to a particular workstation. Second am I doing things right so far. What should be my next consideration

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You could post the settings of your routers to give a little more insight for starters. In the meantime, take a look at this thread I started at bbr showing how to configure an IPSEC vpn tunnel between a WRV54G and an SMCBR18VPN router:
