So, which side is right? The truth is that both sides have valid points. A remote access VPN can be very secure if it is properly configured and used in conjunction with other security measures, such as role-based access control and two-factor authentication. However, a remote access VPN by itself is not necessarily more secure than other methods of connecting to a corporate network.
When deciding whether or not to use a remote access VPN, organizations should consider their specific needs and requirements. If security is paramount, then a remote access VPN may be the best option. However, if convenience is more important than security, then another method of connecting to the network may be preferable.
The specific steps for how to set up remote access will vary depending on the router you are using. However, in general, you will need to create a user account with a username and password and then specify what type of access this user has. You will also need to specify the IP address range that is allowed to connect remotely as well as any other security settings.
Once everything is configured on the router side, you can now move on to setting up your computer or mobile device for VPN access. Again, the steps here will differ depending on what type of device you are using but generally speaking, you will need to install some sort of VPN software and then input the information from your remote user account into it. After everything is set up properly, you should now be able connect to your network from anywhere in the world!
To get started, download and install the latest version of FortiClient from the website. Once it is installed, open the program and click on the “Remote Access” tab. From here, you will need to enter in the IP address or hostname of the remote server that you want to connect to. You will also need to enter in your username and password for authentication. Once you have everything entered, click on the “Connect” button.
FortiClient will now attempt to connect to the remote server. If everything is configured correctly, you should see a status window appear with a green checkmark indicating that the connection was successful. You can now access any resources on the remote network as if you were physically connected to it!
