I think one of the ways is to purchase a static IP address for each machine.
This IP address is yours. You lease it on a monthly basis from ISP. This
will cost you money, not a small change, actually.
Another option which is free and resides inside your Vista is to use Secured
Computer Names. Here is the link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb727045.aspx
follow the instructions and you will get a secured connection.
You will need IPv6 for that, Vista selects it as default.
