    I have broadband both in office and at home and would like to access my work network from home. Currently I use logmein.com which does the job for now. However, we are installing a cctv system which can be viewed over the netowrk with the correct slient software, and logmein.com will not be sufficient to see quality images.

    How can I connect to my office network so that my home computer has all the usual peer to peer accesses (network hard drives, printers etc)? All computers have windows xp Pro and both networks are peer to peer. Both have routers / cable modems which support vpn.

    Best way would be exactly what you've hinted at, VPN. Pass on how you set it up with exclusively XP Pro though - Cisco VPN for me.

    Linksys WRT54G for the home network and a Netgear DG834G for the office network.
