If I wanted to make a vpn to connect to from school to my house, does anyone know how I would go about that? I cant seem to find any software for it on google.

You can use the Microsoft VPN client - Create New Connection. you will need to know the hosts external IP Address to connect to and if there is any security profile, passwords etc... the MS is simple, easy to setup but not that secure.

Most VPNs use some form of Gateway Hardware with a decicated VPN client such as the Nortel Contivity Switch / Client.

Best ask the IT admin at your school for more details on the specifics of their VPN service.

Well, I am trying to make my home computer a host for people to connect to. When I try and create a new 'advanced' connection, it only gives me a modem and parallel port to choose from, not a lan or VPN selection. I wish there was free VPN software....

I have just reread you first post and now see that you wish to go the other way... so again these tools are available but you will need a static IP address from your ISP so that you will always know where to find your host. It will also be best to have a DMZ via some firewall and a separate machine in the DMZ for the sharing of data or whatever .. as these generally get trashed by passer-bys

On XP pro just skip by the parallel. It then gives you an option to do VPN connections.

But with XP Pro you only get 1 concurrent connection for the VPN, you need 2003 server for multiple connections, but 1 is fine for a normal user.

Creating a VPN connection at school so you can access resources from home i think you will find it will not go well. unless you have complete access and control of the network hardware... namely the Router as you will almost with out doubt have to forwared ports. Would just plain old remote desktop work for ya? or what is it you need the connection for... maybe we can figure something out...

Well I'd assume he would have permission to set it up at school, so he could ask the techs to do it for him. Unless he's trying to be a bad boy

Well, currently I use a VPN to the University of Colorado. I use it to find IPs for games and such. I have a very fast asymmetrical connection at home (about 5Mbits down AND up), at least fast for me, and I think I would get a much better connection than from Colorado. Know what I mean? That's what the VPN is for.

However, I do a bit of file transfer as well, but I could indeed use a remote access program for that. Mostly its so that I can game at school.
