That's exactly the point, George - in over 6 years of online service, neither it nor a host it protected has ever been 0wn3d once. Not Once "Someone will hack *everything* someday"; this is about as much a non-statement as could possibly be. You don't write compu-articles for a living, do you? :-p If you have concrete evidence to show that a properly configured ISA is in any way vulnerable, I'm all ears (looks funny; but what the hey).

Actually I've never touched it, the firewall/vpn/router/network whatever decisions here are handled by another group and I have to admit, they have our network purring.

They work fairly well and are a piece of cake to setup. We also use a Cisco VPN concentrator as well as a Neoteris CVPN box at this end, but unless your looking at several hundred site-to-site VPNs that would be way overkill. Check to see if your current router is VPN capable, if so put a small sonicwall at the other end, follow thier doco and you should be set.

So pretty much everything I know is self-taught so excuse me if this is a bit out there. I know that to get Exchange to work outside of the network you need to VPN in. Does anyone have a good information tool for how to setup a simple VPN to work with Exchange? I know I could google it but I get back too many varied links that I don't know which one is the right option. Hopefully thanks for the help!
