VPN with AVM: Possible UsesWith a VPN remote networks and users can connect to each other simply and securely via the Internet. This article provides an overview of the possible uses of the AVM products.
VPN Access for Users
There are many reasons for wanting to integrate remote users into the company network. For instance, some staff working from home or traveling in the field may require access from the road. With "FRITZ!VPN", the software client for computer and notebook, a remote user can establish a VPN connection to a FRITZ!Box.
Once a connection has been established, the remote user can work in the network as if he were connected locally. He can access shared files, open e-mail and send database queries.
Connecting Remote Networks
A network, or a LAN-LAN link lends itself to situations in which geographically separate locations like branch offices are to be networked. Remote networks can be connected using FRITZ!Box.
Once two networks are connected, all devices from one network can access all of the devices in the other network. For instance, servers can be synchronized, databases compared and backups transferred.
FRITZ!Box can also create multiple connections at the same time. Two or more branch offices can be connected with each other, while remote users enjoy access to the network.
