VPN

by JustAnAdmin In reply to VPN

The following link has some pretty good general information on what a VPN is used for: http://www.internetweek.com/VPN/faq.htm

Generally, it is used to be able to access your network from a remote computer just as if it were physically connected to your network. People often set up a terminal server which they connect to through the VPN, which gives them access to a computer in their network that works essentially just like you are sitting in front of the actual computer.

As far as makingit happen, that varies quite a bit. There are many ways to set up a VPN. I would say most are done through a hardware firewall that has built in VPN capability.

I hope this helps!
