Security on a dial-up

By dsiverson ·
What is the difference between security with a dial-up and security with a T1 connection. I want a computer in an outside office to be able to access our server. At present it uses a dial-up and I was going to install PCAnywhere on the computer for communication. Security is a must. If I was going to get a T1 connection I was going to setup a VPN. I would like to know how & why, not just a T1 is more secure.

VPN over dialup

by jellybeenz In reply to Security on a dial-up

I'm no networking guru, but I was able to set up client vpn over dialup with our remote personnel. We used a Sonicwall firewall at the central office and distributed client software to the laptops. They were able to dial up their local ISP and any time they tried to access the server, the VPN client would establish the encrypted tunnel.

Sonicwall is what I'm familiar with, but there are probably similar options out there.
