Access a server from a remote site

By k11summers ·
How do I access data on a server if I am in a different location? (ex: I am 10 miles from where the server is located and I am on my own domain).

VPN would be an obvious choice. It's built in to the OS. There are other criteria that must be met though. Let me know if you need explicit directions on how to do this.

1. You need physical connection.
2. Set of communication rules both servers/OS can use. Eg.TCP/IP .
3.Need to set up trusts between the servers. i.e Get them to allow each other to communicate. eg. two way transitive to both access shared directories etc.
4. Make sure at this point you have compaible security Policies. ie IPsec policies. and authentication.
5.Create appropiate shares and permissions.
Map the drives for ease of use.

If you do not have a network infrastructure I would suggest get them both on the net and set up a VPN. Then just need to create the shares etc..
