(1.) Is it possible to have AD and DNS running behind a DSL connection
without a static ip on a home network?

(2.) Will a third party VPN soltion be required to run a VPN server on
Windows 2000 server? Or can the remote access and routing service built into
Windows 2000 server provide a VPN without a third party appliance and or
application?

(3.) What are cost effective low budget VPN solutions for the Windows 2000
server platform?

Hi,

To hopefully answer your questions;

1) I would not configure a DNS server with a dynamic IP address as this
could cause no end name resoultion problems. If you do not have a static IP
address from your ISP, you could use something like
http://www.dyndns.com/services/dns/dyndns/ so that as your DSL IP address
changes you can still access the network via an alias.

2) You can use RRAS built into W2K server to provide VPN have a look at
http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/w2krras.html

3) Use the built in capabilities of RRAS. Though there are 3rd party
hardware and software available.
