VPN (Virtual Private Network)

Post by tableguy » Fri Sep 26, 2008 8:28 pm

Would like to setup up a connection to my library while I'm on the road. So that I can edit the database on my down time. I have a Verizon account which offers this, but I am complete novice at this. I also have a static ip.



Thank You
Robert A. Sexton

What most people do (that is, my brother does it!) is Remote Control of the computer. VNC and its variants can get you started, although there are many other tools. I will let you decide which is the best for you, but I do remember one that used GPG keys or similar strong security algorithms.
At the end, it is not VPN, because you are not making a virtual network. Correct me if I am wrong, but routers and other network devices need to support VPN. I do not think many home routers allow that.
Regards.

Is is going to be a long learning curve for me. I guess I should seperate the two. Meaning, when I have a hotspot connect and when I have a Verizon connection. I will contact Verizon for that info, and if I can map a drive for MM. But for hotspots could you explain a little further? I did look at my router spec's and it says it has VPN pass-through, whatever that means.


Thanks

Hi again,
I am such a lad that always chooses the complex way. From what it is written in Wikipedia, Remobo might be a solution for you.
And welcome to the computer world, where you need to read a lot of documentation at each step!

Hi,
I want to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) for anonymous web surfing, is there any specific settings I should create?
I did some research about that and somehow I found a topic related to my question but it's not for Linux host environment and because I am not sure if it's going to work I open this new thread...
