    I have a client with 5 offices. SBS2003 will go at the central office and
    2003 Server at each of the other offices.

    Is there a document saying how to set up VPN's with this combination? I
    have the "Step-by-Step Guide..." for setting up VPN's between 2003 Servers,
    but a few questions:

    I assume that my 2003 Servers all have to be set up as backup domain
    controllers. What is the best way to do that, bearing in mind that they have
    to be on different subnets so that traffic can get to the right workstations?
    For example the SBS will be on 192.168.16.2 - will one of my 2003 servers
    have to be on say 192.168.15.2 etc?

    Am I best setting up the 2003 servers adjacent to the SBS for faster
    connectivity rather than over the VPN?

    In that case how can I get them to communicate when they are on different
    subnets?

    There is a lot of harware VPN equipment about - does this have any advantage
    over creating VPN's through server software?

    Thanks,
    Steve.

    "In that case how can I get them to communicate when they are on different
    subnets?" VPN will take care of this.
