WAN questions

OK I'm setting up a second office halfway across the country and I want to be able to access my peer to peer Windows 98 network here in my first office. I assume this is what a WAN is all about?

How does one go about setting one up? Do you have to get a frame relay connection or can it be done through the internet? What hardware is needed? Has anybody else here done this?

About all I could find on this related to Linux systems...

You are correct, there are so many options and possible configurations that it can be very confusing. Start reading the Virtual Private Networking faqs. They have the most detailed info out there on setting up networking under 98 over the net.

I used to do it quite often with a collegue down in Australia. We used vpn (not to difficult) and pure file shares (risky if you don't know what you are doing).

Are you familar with setting up a lan under 98? If so, it's not much more than a configuration issue.

Second VPN as a solution. I set this up for two remote sales office so they could share spread sheets and DBs in real time.
