What is peoples opinion on the best VPN solution for remote access from home to a company network.
I'd obviously have a crack at Windows RRAS, but is this actually any good compared to others? What are peoples experiences.. Do many of you use the Windows client and Remote desktop for example? or is it more the VNC/Cisco/Hardware Solution (Checkpoint\Sonicwall etc)
Both from a user and technical aspect, what do you guys use in your networks? Its a first for me, having to set a VPN up from scratch in a real world environment and i would like some advice on the best procedures/Industry standards for VPN access.
I'd just like to draw a picture on the best way to implement this & having your opinions would be a great help.
This is probably one of many, but I use the native VPN support in Windows XP Professional at the client end with a hardware VPN router/concentrator at the centre. I found that though Microsoft provide VPN support in their various server offerings it was far more complicated to set up than just to buy el-cheapo plastic box and do ten minutes configuring. There are many such boxes available; I use a Draytek but there are others equally as good and perhaps better
