Remote access options to SBS 2008 and security implications
Posted on 2011-03-25
I am new to servers, so if my terminology and understanding is a bit below par, please excuse me.
We recently set up a server with SBS2008 and want to access it remotely, We have been able to do this OK, but want to know the best way to go about it. In my brief exposure to this, I always used a VPN and Remote Desktop Connection, but info included in SBS2008 suggests accessing via a web browser. Email, Shares and other computers can be accessed this way.
Can anyone tell me whether the web based access is any less secure that the VPN access? Which would you recommend?
Are there any other good alternatives?
Any other tips?
