Re: NEW VPN solution without VPN clients

Hi Chris,
Once u r connected to your corporate network thru VPN, u will have access to the servers. So u should be able to transfer the files..

for me is the file transfer very important and I have to be 100% sure,
before I order the VPN gateway
for about 9000.- EURO

Hi Chris,
using ftp may be a little dangerous for your corporate server.
VPN grant more security than ftp.

I find ftp very dangerously also, to use productively.

Re: NEW VPN solution without VPN clients

I'm a little confused here my friend but if you dial directly to the Corp. then I wouldn't worry about that.
Only if you access your corp. through the internet using the VPN client then, you need to take pre-caution.
You must install and enable a firewall anyway!!! Zone Alarm is a good choice

take care
