Re: terminal server security vs vpn

If you use SSL-VPN you will not need a client, or at worst you will
not be required to install a client before you can make the
connection.  The only thing needed from that standpoint is a browser.
This makes VPN more "Web Like" and easier on the user, without
compromising your security.  i would contact one of the loacl
resellers in your area and ask for a demo

Cisco, Juniper, Aventail and Checkpoint all have SSL-VPN solutions
that are quite nice.  I prefer the Juniper myself.

Hope this helps

I am looking for a solution to my users so they can
log in from home and work connect to there office
pc's, of course I will use terminlal server.

My question is, why to use double encryption, why use
vpn client to connect to the corporate FW and then to
connect throw it with a ts session, AFAIK Ts is
encrypted as well and one can set the encryption to
high which is the same as VPN right?

I want to nake the connection simple to the user and
securure. do I need also a vpn client, I guess not, am
I missing something here?

I will also change the port to increase security.

Thanks a lot,
