My company just aquired some new storage space and are wanting to put a PC there to receive emails and such. What would I need to be able to connect that PC to our corporate office network? Thanks

Hi mike14

How far away physically will the new PC be from the rest of the network?

I would suggest in that case, a VPN (Virtual Private Network) link may be best. This should allow you to connect to the office network via the Internet but using a secure connection.

Obviously the finer details would depend on the office networks configuration i.e what you have in terms of servers, routers etc & which machines on the network in particular you would need to connect to.

I recommend using OpenVPN, it is free and easy to setup. You can find a link to the official page HERE
