So does anyone know if Ameritech DSL will support a VPN connection?
Usually it's 90% dependent on your DSL "modem". Which VPN are you using...aventail?
yeah...the problem is that alot of DSL providers are USING VPN to provide you access...if your not sure, check and see if you were given a static IP address....9/10 times if you DO have a static adress you will be able to use VPN. I use a Lucent built VPN client to connect to work and have no trouble

You don't need a static IP address to work the VPN. Sheesh, why does everyone think you do? All you need is the IP address at the time you're trying to connect. I do this all the time with my business partner. Since our DSL connections are "always on", our IP addresses seldom change. And when they do, it's usually something that Qwest had done from their system.
