Dude why dont you read your windows help files, or look at the microsoft webpage for info instead of asking here. Christ people are lazy

erm..funnily?

Why don't you open *YOUR* Help file (Start, Help) and type in VPN. It takes 5 seconds to do that, and there's tons of info that comes up. If your mate wants to VPN, maybe he should *gasp* also read the help file.

"i tried that, but it wasn't much help at all, especially since i dont have 98se myself"

You looked through a help file that you don't even have?

Funny, the first result I get is called "MAKE A VPN CONNECTION". And the built in wizard for making VPN connections is pretty helpful too. Methinks you're just lazy.
