Creating a WAN/VPN

Specs: Windows Vista SP1
Hi. I've got a question regarding the connection
of two networks. One consists of 30
workstations running Vista SP1, and 2
servers, a domain controller and a print/file
server (network1), the other is around 20 pc's
wit h the same OS(network2).
I need to connect the networks so they can
share resources & an internet connection. At
the moment Network 1 can access the
internet but network 2 cannot. Is there a way
to connect the two LAN's without using an
internet connection? Thanks

There's only two possibilities I can think of and both are a whole lot more expensive than getting an internet connection for network 2 and setting up a VPN between them.

1) Dedicated fibre optic connection between locations
2) Enterprise level Point-to-Point wireless shot between locations.

I suggest you get internet at your second location if at all possible.

The first question I would ask is how far apart are these two networks are.

VPN over Internet is certainly going to be the cheapest and simplest to implement.

Anything else is going to cost and the further apart, the more it will cost.
