I need to synchronize or work on files between my traveling laptop (Ibook) and my desktop at the office which is a G3 connected to a DSL modem. I would also like to share a calendar between both machines.
I'm trying to figure out the easiest and most efficient solution for this. Are there VPN products for MAC?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide,
Jon

Hi. This is a big question! IMHO worth more than 100 points! Unless your office is a big corporate with big corporate money to spend on items like CISCO 5000s, not really, as the only Mac OS 9 VPN clients are only bundled with the hardware (shame). If you are prepared to run OSX then you can use Digitunnel to create a PPTP tunnel (assumes you have PPTP server) and then you'll need to create a Hosts file (use Hostal). That creates a pipe to your office. Then just the small question of what app to use. If you have PPTP server you could maybe keep the calender database on the server or if you have Exchange just use Outlook 2001. This is only a get you started answer, but HTH. Steve

Hi weed... I did, but it seems if you would like to offer a proposal for answer then the question gets locked regardless? I saw that you had offered a comment, and as this is a question my customers ask all the time, thought I would offer an answer

Hello hotblack999, and welcome to Experts-Exchange.  As you are new to the site, I would like to explain that the User asking the question, chooses which comment he/she has the better option for them, as we canot see what the User has done.

Regadless, it is common curtsey to use the comment button when trying to help, then your comment could be chosen as well.  Besides, when you post an answer, it removes it from the actibe questiosn, and locks other members to join in.  Thus the name, collobative.

Regards,
