It's hard to say what's 'best' but it's totally possible to do this
using IPSEC on the windows 2003 boxes but...

If you have a wan Links your going to need a Router - (Assuming your not
going to plug a usb adsl modem in the a usb port of a server) - There
are many Cheap DSL routers out there with built in firewalls and VPN
tunneling capabilities - Check out http://www.billion.com/ for one

Now it may be that your ISP is providing the router - you could ask them
if they have a vpn solution (Some do).

I would highly recommend using the same provider at both sites.

Subject: Secure communication between WAN links

Hi, I am working on an assignment planning and implementing a windows
2003 network.
We have a small organisation with departments on different locations.
One of the assignments was to secure the communication between two sites
connected trough WAN links.
The question is:
What is the "best" solution to use to secure the communication between
these two sites?
We can only use Windows 2003 servers.. no 3rd party software, or
hardware based solutions..
The connection speed between the sites is 256 Kbps.
I guess an IPSEC tunnel or something like that is the right way to go,
but i don't have any experience doing this, and I want to be sure I'm
implementing it the right way.
I have googled a while, but I cant find any articles describing my
choices,  and how to correctly install and implement it.
(not enough to make an intelligent decision anyway).

Sorry about my bad English and thanks for your help!
