New to wan

I have setup a client/server network(lan) consisting of one win2000 server and four win2000 pro clients. what I want to do is connect further three win2000 pro clients from three different locations based from home.

The question one: what hardware and software will I require to connect three clients based from home (at home end)?

Question two: what hardware and software will I require to connect three clients based from office to home (at office end)?

Question three: will I need things like phone lines if so then what type?

Question four: what should be the ip configurations; what protocols will I need to use?

Any and all help is much appreciated. many thanks in advanced

Re: New to wan

Question one: what hardware and software will I require to connect three clients based from home (at home end)?

It depends on the link you are planning and estimate of the cost.

Link : Async or ISDN or Leased line

Hardware : Based on the link you should select the Cisco Routers. For async link modem is sufficient, routers not needed

Software : Cisco routers bundles with IOS.

Question two: what hardware and software will I require to connect three clients based from office to home (at office end)?

Link : Async or ISDN or Leased line

Hardware : Cisco routers (Access routers)

Software : Cisco routers bundles with IOS.

Question three: will I need things like phone lines if so then what type?

You need links to interconnect between cities. Links can be of Async or ISDN or leased line. According to your cost estimate you can select any one. All these variety of links are provided by telephone companies.

Question four: what should be the ip configurations; what protocols will I need to use?

refer the link http://www.cisco.com/tac according to the type of link , you can see sample configuration after you select the model of Router in Hardware support.

Protocol : IP
