Question Virtual Private Network problem

Hi!

At work we have a VPN connecting 5 PCs. The problem is that everything that is launched from within the network comes at 16 colours only, with no acceleration, making difficult to see some things and it looks awful. Host PC is running Win2000 and it has a TNT2 M64 card which should be enough. Desktop is configured at 800x600x256c and there isn't any other setting available. The computer i connect to the vpn from is running W98SE and has desktop configured at 800x600x65536 colours (hi-color). Any help would be greatly appreciated. We are new to this VPN technology and we don't know what to do. TIA.

VPN is a vetual privat network. It sounds more like you are trying to do telnet or remote desktop or something.

I use a Cisco Pix for a firewall at work and I as well as sells and engineering personell use it to log onto the network from remote locations. At that time we have access to network shares and the email server.

If you are remote controlling a system using terminal services that is a whole nother ball of wax. What are you running on the system you can connect 5 computers to?

Yes i'm using terminal server to remotely control the system. The main system must be running win2000 or XP. On my work (W98SE) i am running as terminal client.

When you connect to a Windows Server 2003-based computer by using the Remote Desktop Connection client, you can specify for the client to run with more than 256 colors. Before you specify a color-resolution setting, you must first set up Remote Desktop Connections. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Right-click My Computer, click Properties, and then click the Remote tab.
2. Click to select the Allow users to connect remotely to this computer check box, and then click OK.
3. On another computer, start Remote Desktop Connections. To do this, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to Communications, and then click Remote Desktop Connection.
4. Type the name of the computer that you are connecting to.
5. Click Options to expand the connection window.
6. Click the Display tab, and then select a color resolution other than 256 under Colors.
7. Click Connect to start the session.

Not sure how much would apply to a 2000 server but it ashould be close
