Apple-Heads

Thought I'd pose this to you guys before I have to ask our resident "potato-head". Just added a fleet of new mac-books and we're setting up network to access a main frame MAC in office. We.re using Airport Extreme in the office (which is very cool on inhouse network) but I'm curious as to what you apple-heads here at UB would use to access a base unit from AFAR (we're experimenting this week w/dyn DNS -but we're open to others)

PS: new mac-books rock! Dual core, 2gb X 2gb x 200g fully loaded $1890.

You can get another airport base station and link them together and use them as antennas for each other. You might also be able to get the same thing with an airtunes adaptor. You might also be able to get an atenna for it that will let you access it from farther.

I got a macbook in august and I love it.

That's basically what we're trying to do but reliably - we send ALOT of music and it's got to be reliable.

My bro says VPN (Virtual Private Networks) is the way to go
edit from my bro:
DynDNS is just a way to locate their main network from afar, but that
does not help them securely access it. DYNDNs works great but they only
need it if they have a dynamic IP at the perimeter of their home LAN.
To
securely access the LAN They should use VPN
