The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Okay after my previous thread dealing with frustration, I can finally do this
Background: A business hired me to network their offices, I've run into numerous problems involving viruses, cocked up updates, every windows OS from the last decade being involved, charter being total fuckups who can't figure out why a modem won't connect (and me being blamed for it, because i control the blinking internet light)
Anyway, finally got static IP addresses in the offices and now I want to VPN them
I was going to order a Charter VPN, but the owner and his wife refuse to be bothered looking up their account info or take five minutes to call Charter and have me authorized to speak for their account, so that's not an option (their opinion is that I should have everything working already and require nothing from them in terms of effort)
So in lieu of that I need a small business VPN/Firewall. Now I can't replace their existing routers, because he insists they are under contract with their printer manufacturer to use that exact router (whatever), but I should still be able to chain the modem, router and vpn/firewall
I have no experience purchasing these and since I'm paying for it I can't go too expensive, what's a good option here? I'm dealing with miniscule amounts of data and only a maximum of 12 computers, so it just needs to be reliable and relatively simple to set up (go into its configuration and point it to the other one and set up a VPN).
