OpenVPN as a replacement for Easylink???
I support a number of schools in North London and was wondering if anyone has used OpenVPN (or some other type of solution) for remote access to shared drives from home.
OpenVPN looks like the type of solution we would need but to set it up requires me to 'justify' myself to Synetrix and get them to open up a port to the server (which can take a while and be quite a painful process from experience).
Has anyone out there used this successfully and could you give me some guidance on how to set this up. Obviously I don't want to spend a load of time on it if it isn't worth it.
Some of my schools currently use RM Easylink with varying degrees of success (different versions of IE being the cause of much of the trouble).
In a nutshell, I want a solution that will allow teachers to access the shared areas simply and in a form that they would understand - ie. so that it shows up in a similar way to Windows explorer.
Thanks in advance
