Re: Encrypting FTP transfers



fixed

We are also doing VPN over the Internet, using NT PPTP on the server side
and the PPTP (VPN) client that comes with Windoze on the client side.  The
raw performance is not as good as a straight connection to our AS400 via the
Internet thru our proxy server, but for secure access to all the services on
our network, it works fine.

>I'm working with a client over the internet using a Virtual Private
Network.  There is a bit of software running on my PC that encrypts the
packets going over the internet.  The intermediate destination for the
packets is the VPN server on their network.  It's job is to decrypt the
packets, and send them unencrypted to their true destination.

CheckPoint VPN-1 SecureRemote.  I think the company is CheckPoint Software
