Third party VPN software?





Bones
Me and a few friends want to set up a VPN so that we can play some games together (some of which no longer have an online service available, and only support 2 players via direct connect).

I have never set up a VPN client or server before, and after doing some reading, it looks like the VPN server built into XP Pro only accepts one incoming connection at a time? Is this correct? And if so, can anyone recommend third party VPN server software that will accept multiple connections at once.

Prefer free software, but if I have to buy it then I have to buy it.

cheers

Windows2000 or WindowsXP itself has VPN software. You may enable it in system serivces and config in system control panel.

I know that netscreen and cisco has its VPN software. Their software are OEM from safenet. There is also a best software from http://www.thegreenbow.com, You may download their 30days trial version from the website.

I use Ultra VNC.
It's free and lightweight, easy to setup and use.

Go here to get it http://ultravnc.sourceforge.net/

Yes I know that Xp has VPN software built in (as it says in the original post). I'll check out that VPN client though, thanks for the link.

Otiscom: Hrm VPN and VNC are not the same thing?? I checked out the site you linked to, but that is remote admin software, thanks anyway, but not what I am looking for.
