I work for a small multi national company as their IT Manager. We have 3 users in the UAE. They have a DSL line. They have a local IT contractor who set up their network. The issue is they cannot create a vpn connection with our server in the US. When trying to trouble shoot with the local contractor in the UAE, he indicated the problem was that the DSL provider's routers/network does not allow or cannot handle VPN tunnelling or encryption. Has anyone heard of this? Also, if the provider does not allow vpn or encryption, wouldnt http over rpc be out the window as well because of SSL?
If anyone has experience in the middle east and can provide insight on the VPN issue or if http over rpc would work, please let me know.
