I don't see why you wouldn't be able to unless an admin (such as myself)
between you and the server denies it at the firewall. I know we deny all
outbound VPN traffic from non-authorized hosts because in our situation it
serves no purpose and essentially indicates that someone is up to something
non-work related. And we only allow inbound VPN connections from specific
IPs (another site for instance).

Try using VPN and private addressing for security sake and make sure your
firewalls allow that sort of traffic (again - some companies have 3rd
parties manage their firewalls and kill VPN except to/from specific IPs).

I know this is somewhat off topic from the m0n0wall list server, but being a
member and user of m0n0wall, I have seen some pretty high-speed people on
this list who can hopefully answer my question

We are moving some of our application servers off site to a co-lo. In
testing, we are having a problem running a legacey application, which
happens to only work properly on a windows 95/98 box. This is a long story,
but not really part of the question.

The question posed to me:

If we leave this one box at our main office, can we map a drive letter from
the windows 98 box --> to a server at the co-lo ? My first response was no.
But in thinking about this, I was wondering if I could use a VPN tunnel
connecting the two networks ?

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated
