[access-uk] Re: Virtual Private Network question

Hi,

No; the VPN runs as a network, there shouldn't be anything else you need
to do other than log in using user cridentials etc.  Windows ME may not
connect to it, though, and work may insist of tougher security (an
insecure desktop connecting to a VPN is one really good way of infecting
every PC in work). 

The one issue could be if they use some form of challenge/response
system that requires a random number to be entered, this is usually
generated via a keyring device that gives you a number on the LCD
screen, however, these seem to be less and less popular these days.

Subject: [access-uk] Virtual Private Network question

Hi,

Tomorrow someone is coming to set up my computer so I can get my work
e-mails with Outlook from home.  On the phone they said that because I
have Windows ME, the software they need isn't built in, so they will
instal something.  They also mentioned a virtual private network.  Is
there anything I need to be aware of in terms of accessibility?
