Thanks to the iPod's and iPhone's popularity, many users have given Apple's products a second look. Some have even taken the plunge and purchased full-fledged Apple desktops and/or laptops. If you use your Apple for work, chances are you'll want to be able to use it on a virtual private network (VPN), which brings us to the subject of today's article.
Setting up a VPN can be a scary idea for someone that is not a computer professional. If you do not happen to be a Mac user, the idea of setting one up for an operating system with which you are not familiar with can be terrifying.
No matter which of those two categories you happen to fall into your natural anxiety can be minimized with the judicious application of information. That is right, with the correct set of instructions you can get your Mac-based VPN set up as quickly and as painlessly as possible.
Those directions are exactly what you will find here and now. We will look at how to configure a Mac server, Mac desktops and laptops and even your iPhone/iPod touch for a VPN. That way, no matter what Apple device you need to set up, you can hit the ground running.
What is a VPN?
For those of you who are not familiar with the acronym "VPN," it stands for Virtual Private Network. What this means in practical terms is a way of establishing a remote connection between two machines that allows them to share data (or access the web) from behind a private wall of encryption.
VPNs have long been used by companies that wanted to grant staff remote access to their systems without leaving the systems accessible to a black hat hacker or malicious programming. Now that we have taken care of that, letís move on to the only other question you may have before the instructions.
