Northern Virginia VPN’s Connecting Computers – VPN’s Connecting PC’s Over The Internet, Northern Virginia
A VPN or Virtual Private Network is a secure, private network connection that allows two or more computers to connect across the internet. Using VPN’s has become very popular in workplaces that allow their employees to telecommute, and even though a VPN runs over the internet, they are extremely secure do to high levels of encryption. The two main ways of setting up a VPN are either through a specialized consumer VPN router or to install VPN software, which seems to be the more common method, especially among individuals who have small businesses and want the ability to connect to their main computer from just about anywhere in the world.
If you are interested in setting up a VPN, Geek ABC is here and we can help.
