From Out-of-Office to VPN in 15 Minutes

Published by Edwin Chung
on October 14, 2011

Traditionally, using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to connect to a remote site has been a technical – and oftentimes troublesome – requirement. With the growing popularity of using “remote programmers”, I see requests for purchasing Cisco routers and Windows servers. Tiny businesses often expect VPN setup to be daunting and assume that you need to buy expensive hardware, complicated software, and an IT manager.

Hamachi is an easy, seamless solution that will let you access Work (or Home) resources from another site without configuring firewalls and writing routing tables! Communications are encrypted for security, meaning the person with the sunglasses at the local Starbucks won’t be eavesdropping on your Skype conversation. Attached are some instructions for getting Hamachi VPN setup in just a few minutes!
