Basic PIX VPN question

Thank you in advance to anyone who reads my post! I was able to setup a VPN solution using PPTP, and once authenticated on the PIX-506E, users then use Remote Desktop to connect to their Windows XP machines. Works very well, for people who actually work in the office and have a computer here. My question is, what is the best method to allow outside users from other offices to connect to our PIX and access our LAN without having a computer inside? How do I allow access to our fileserver? Can I map a drive letter to our shared folders like our internal clients do now? Im not a certified cisco person, but I can read and understand knoweledge base articles. I was able to get the easy PPTP solution working, so if someone could just point me to that kind of instructional documents that would be awesome. Thanks again!

Hi,

You can use ipsec client or same pptp clients to do that, they should be able to map network drives, and/or use network neighborhood, they dont need a PC to do above.

Thx
