Internet connection without internet browsing ?

Hello Gurus,

I am in the process of having internet in 45 branches of a company I am an IT in
and I need that connection to be able to link the stores to the main office without having to bother about the internet..
and the employees surfing the net...and downloading...and all this hassle.

is there any such configuration ?
having dropbox or sugarsync or something similar will be enough for me !!!!

The thing with VPN is, that it will not be an easy task to set up and get running everywhere. But if you have it working you have a reliable, secure and semi-professional solution, that should be easy to maintain and support.

You can have a look at this guide, it should give you an idea at what you're about to embark, if you chose to go the VPN way.

Also be sure that you understand the basics of VPN before you make a decision. 

And yes, you can do that over DSL, no problem. You cannot use teamviewer though, as this needs an open internet connection. Instead you can also use TighVNC or something like that, that basicially works the same way, but uses a direct connection between the two computers.
Usually you just configure a VPN. Many consumer routers you can buy are able to conenct to an OpenVPN site. You just have to set up one on headquarter and give preconfigured routers to your stores. If you set it up right, your stores will not have internet access at all. They can just connect to your HQ.

But let me ask you this question: Why do you want to give them internet if you don't want them to have internet?

I want to have internet in the stores for 2 main purposes:

1-I need to have teamviewer account so I can access the store and fix whatever issue they have.

2-I need to have their data saved in the office (maybe using dropbox... or something similar...)

BUT I do not want them to have internet access and waste time playing and exposing the system to malware/viruses...etc...

Can u please explore more the VPN issue ?

Can I do this over DSL ? what do I have to do ? and ??etc...
