options for accessing resources through a VPN
Posted on 2003-12-05
I have just setup my first VPN! YaHoo! using Windows SBS2000
It is intended to be used by remote employees to access company Documents and store Job Files.
I can make the connection from a client outside the firewall through the "Network Connection & Dial-up" wizard for "Make a new Connection" But then what?
How is this usually done. Map network drives...shortcuts?
I guess I never thought past setting up the connection.
We also use a Pervasive/SQL Database App called Timberline. We have been discussing having some remote users, the ability to run the Client software over the VPN. This opened my eyes to some new Possibilities! That's been happening alot lately.
What are some other ways a VPN "can be of use"?
