RE: Teleworking

For one of the deployments I was involved with at my company, instead of
using our normal VPN we used a Neoteris IVE device.  It integrates very well
with Citrix's Nfuse (or "Web Interface for Application Server" now, I think)
web portal.  It also has the neat feature of pushing down a Java-based
session manager when you connect, so you don't need to get the VPN client
pre-installed on client workstations.

I'm not sure what the cost is, so I can't say if it'll fit in your budget or
not, but I know our telecom guys were happier with it for external access
than a traditional VPN because it's really more of a reverse proxy than a
real VPN solution, so it can be more secure.

Might be worth a look.

Subject: Teleworking

I'm about to embark on a teleworking project and would like 
to ask you guys the following...

I was going to be using Cisco-based 3des VPNs out to clients 
who will use the vpn client s/w loaded on their machines, an 
adsl connection and citrix for a remote desktop.

I was going to employ a securID or similar box to provide 
additional security.

Could anyone out there recommend any other options?  I want 
the connection to be very secure and allow for a concurrent 
usage of up to 50 clients coming in at any one time.

Your help will be much appreciated...

Regards,

Dave.
