I can go anywhere in the world with my laptop and support clients, from a
beach, boat, or from the top of Mt Washington etc.  If I have to get onto
my system, I just get onto the internet and then get on my system.  From my
400 system, I can get onto any of my clients systems within a matter of 5
minutes.   I can fax them, download files, upload files, debug problems.  

I have a unique password system over and above IBM's signon and password
system.  A password in this system is only used once in its life.  I carry
two diskettes with the codes on them.  If I have to get on 10 times in a
day, I would use 10 different passwords just in case someone was sniffing
the line for a password.  If you don't use the proper password, you are not
let on my system.  

If you are in the middle of Marblehead harbor watching the USS
Constritution come into the harbor for the 2nd time in 140 years, you don't
want to try to find a telephone.  
By using the internet, you are keeping the cost of the telephone call low. 
 There are certain restructions that have to be implemented to make your
system secure like restricting FTP etc.
