We provide 2 solutions that will cater for almost any configuration or budget.
Server/client solution, PC based VPN
This solution is used to allow users working offsite or from home to access company resources. This can be file sharing, mail, Pastel or whatever is available at the office. A Linux based PC/server is set up on the network that needs to be accessed. A VPN Client (small piece of software) is installed on any PC/laptop that needs to gain access to the company resources.
The connecting clients can run on any form of connectivity including Iburst, ADSL, Diginet, or 3g, Windows ,Linux or Mac. This is a once off cost with the only monthly cost being your service providers bill for connectivity. Cost is R5000 excl vat for installation plus travel. A PC is also required for this installation which can be supplied by us or yourselves.
