New Office Server Set-up

Hi Guys,

Please help. I wish to set a server at my office that can be accessed from home. We store all business information on a hard drive connected through the router at the office.

How can I set up a server, be able to work from home but still access, alter the information on the hard drive at my office?

We are a small family business and need access for approx 4 people that can work from home at any point.

Any help please?

Oh, I am not a computer wizz and will need step by step and good description advice so I can understand in simple terms

Thanks in advance

Does your office have a static or Dynamic IP? Static: Set up the VPN client on your server Direct port 1732 through your router to your server.
Make sure your profile on the server allows remote connections. On your home PC set up a new VPN connection using the office STATIC IP address and use your office credentials to log in then you will have access to all of the locations on the server your profile allows. Dynamic: Register with DynDNS this will create you a domain which will keep track of your IP changes. Set up the VPN client on your server Direct port 1732 through your router to your server.
Make sure your profile on the server allows remote connections. On your home PC set up a new VPN connection using the DynDENS domain names and use your office credentials to log in then you will have access to all of the locations on the server your profile allows.
