I have a question to ask about VNC and OpenVPN with regard to setting up a VPN connection. Let me give some background as to how I currently connect to the network at work using XP at home (work servers are MS).
1. Setup a VPN via setting up a network Connection (using my work’s IP address).
2. Double-click on connection – enter logon credentials as I would when logging on at work. This connects me to the network.
3. I then use Remote Desktop Connection to log on to my machine. Instead of enetering an IP address here I enter my machine’s identity on the work network – computernumber.company.local.
4. I then can access my computer.
Now from what I have read up on VNC and OpenVPN, it seems that I would need to have the server version of either program setup on the work network. Am I correct in this assumption?
