VPN Work

Just about to move to windows 7 from XP and before used to use VPN to connect to Work so i could work from home. Will i still be bale to do this when i move to 7 connect from my home pc on 7 to my work pc on xp.

I'm also thinking of having a dual login just in case. If so if 7 works fine could i just delete the old XP partition.

Can anyone give me some advice

thanks

Hello Digger, welcome to the SevenForums.

VPN works just fine after installing Seven. No reason as to why not. Still, dual booting is a good idea.

In this excellent tutorial by Brink you find everything you need to know about setting up a dual boot XP / Seven system.

If i decide to dual boot is it easy to delete the XP partition when i am happy with 7

Yes. Though it needs a little bit extra effort to remove one OS from a dual boot system, it is quite easy and straight forward procedure.
