VPN Requirements

To begin with, I have three or maybe four computers running Windows XP home edition. Each computer has broadband access using a linksys routers (either BEFSR41 or WRT54G) .

One of the computer is located in the company office and the others are located at the employees' homes.

I would like to use the Network Connection Wizard, but the first thing it asks for is the Host name or IP address of the computer you want to connect to.

Now a couple of questions.

With the limitations listed above, do I need a Static IP address on each of the computers?

What is Plan "B" if Static IP addresses are not availabel one or more of the computers?

I have been working with computers since the bits were flat, but I am a VPN newbie. Thanks
