Hi Guys,

Basically I want to integrate my new Mac mini server into my home office.
I have a router connected to my Time Capsule, which is wireleslly connected to my Airport express.
Now I have connected the server to the Airport express, so that I can create a VPN to access my data when Im travelling but I really have a problem with the configuration...

Could someone please help me out, I would appreciate it lots!!

All the best,

QUOTE Thanks

Assuming you are using L2TP (IPSEC) versus PPTP you will need to allow a few ports through your firewall. This is also assuming your server has a static IP address and you know how to port forward services through your firewall.

The ports required for L2TP are:
500 (racoon)
1723 (L2TP VPN)
4500 (racoon)

You will also need to setup AFP sharing from the server as well as the VPN service itself.
