VPN Access

 CafeNET VPN gives you secure, high speed, access to your office network from anywhere on the CafeNET network.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is an encrypted connection between a computer (client), through a company's firewall, into the internal network.  As the data is encrypted, only the client computer and firewall are able to read it - its safe from other people trying to eavesdropon your data.

CafeNET VPN sets your company's firewall's IP address as an approved 'Destination IP' so that when you connect to your VPN you don't have to login and the data doesn't count against your prepaid data allowance.

To use CafeNET VPN, you will need a VPN setup between your computer and your company's network - this will be set up by your IT department.  Currently we have tested the following VPN protocols:
