Thanks for the posts.
Instead of WINS, couldn't I just use the hosts file on the windows 98 box ??
As for VPN Firewall ACL's.. I agree. We have a good relationship with
the co-lo. My intent would be to prevent VPN access inbound at the
co-lo except from our network.
The only publically accessible inbound protocols at the co-lo, would
be TCP http/https...again except from our network.
