The Joy Of VPN

Southern Man calls himself a geek but the truth is he's usually well behind the curve on most things tech so this will be old news to many readers. However his university just started a beta program in which faculty can use VPN to remote into their office desktops. Southern Man signed up and having finally gotten all of the instructions home spent a few minutes setting things up.

And it works. Oh, boy, does it work. Southern Man is using a dual-monitor setup at home and currently has his office PC on one monitor and a home machine on the other. He can access all of his files at school, do everything the network normally allows, and even drag and drop across machines.

It is pure geek bliss. Southern Man can't begin to count the times where he went into the office early or on a day off just 'cause what he needed was on his office PC or somewhere on the university network. No more! The era of Southern Man telecommuting has begun!

Welcome to my corporate world. vpn'ing is pretty much what I do all the time. Although I prefer being in the office to see other people...some of the time.
