    Hi Mike,
    Evern if my server has a private IP address I can use
    that on my XP computer to connect via VPN?

    No. Same rules apply as for RDP (TS). If you will use same server as you did
    for TS you will connect to that IP.

    So we're back to the begining I guess. Whether I want to
    use TS or VPN, I still need to have an static public IP
    address to do that right?

    I checked with my ISP and found that I would have to pay
    double what I'm paying now to get an static IP.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks Mike.

    In neither case you need a static IP. We are just talking about more or less
    secure configuration.

    Still, the problem is anyone can use TS client to connect to your server and
    get to logon screen. Then they can just start guessing e.g. usernames and

    With VPN, they have less information on which to build their attacks. If
    setup correctly VPN would be considered more secure solution...

    When I travel and I am away from my home, I use VPN to connect to the
    office. For this to work I can't have any restrictions based on IP or I
    wouldn't be able to connect to the office.
