VPN Connection

Your company’s Virtual Private Network (VPN) creates a secure connection using the internet for access to your company’s resources when you are out of the office. This privilege comes with responsibility. See below for best practices.

Best Practices

The health of the company depends on the health of your home computer or whatever machine you use for access. Here are some tips to help keep your personal and company data safe, as well as optimize the performance of your machine.

  • Always install all Windows updates
  • Install antivirus software and keep it up to date
  • Always have Windows Firewall enabled
  • Use Chrome or Firefox with an adware blocker
  • Always power down Hamachi when not in use
  • Avoid using public WiFi while using the VPN

How To Connect

If you connect using mapped drives: No action is required at this time because the mapped drives will carry over automatically. 

If you connected through your home computer: F8 will reach out to you to schedule a remote session.  You will need to be in front of your computer at that time.
