Just spend a couple of hundred dollars it takes to get a VPN setup and be done with it. Once you have a VPN you can VNC/RDP wherever you want plus a whole host of other benefits. No matter what you are going to have to pay. So quit being cheap, do it right and eliminate the problem. Penny wise, pound foolish?

You do have a point and I may have to look into that.

They did release a app for chrome desktop for android. Had to use it this morning. It's not horrible but I don't think I can process a job with it.

I'm lucky where if I come up with something and pitch it correctly I have a very good chance of getting it. I'm going to start looking and will end up creating a new post for questions.

Cisco, Juniper, SonicWall, etc are all great brands with a variety of solutions depending on your needs. Much less expensive to implement now than it was a few years ago. Keeps getting less and less expensive.

If you want to be really frugal about it you can use tools like Untangle who has a free vpn as part of their free package. https://www.untangle.com/store/openvpn.html

Untangle also sells additional modules for various things like content filters, spam blockers, virus protection at the gateway, IP failover, load balancing, AD integration, caching proxy server, etc. Plus they have professional services to help get it up and running and stay running.

Yeah, This needs to be another post. I'm really considering doing this instead of jerking around with remote desktop.

The Untangle one looks interesting. If you start the project be sure to create a new thread so we can see how it goes. Depending on the workload this week after being off for a week I might try something too.

Edit: OK...I see you created the new thread here: VPN implementation
