VPN (Virtual Private Networks)

 

We install and configure VPN's

 

  Make secure wide area networks via the internet. We design both "site-to-site" and "client to home network" VPN's.

  There are several ways to share your data (or other files) with folks outside your local area network.  Iíll discuss two here:

  VPN and  Terminal Server.

   In a VPN (Virtual Private Network) an outside machine is  connected to your net and  given an IP address in the same subnet as your existing network.

 This can be done into your site from a computer running VPN software. if you are hosting a VPN you'll need VPN hardware.

  Examples:   We recently connected a security firm's database back to the monitoring computers from 6 miles away; think of this VPN as a very long network cable. Another job gave an energy firm access to a service program via a web page that ONLY they could see.

   in our most recent use of VPN we allowed roaming field reps access to an MS Access database. This is an inexpensive method, as it uses only your existing equipment and a VPN server

   Note that certain modifications must be done to the data file, and that the usefulness of the idea depends upon connection speed and reliability. If your field people are on weak or slow connections you run the risk of data corruption in an Access file. A better method would be Terminal Server.

Two good choices for small office VPN devices: the Cisco ASA and the Sonicwall TZ100
