High Speed Satalite with VPN...with this work

I can't get cable or I'l looking at getting directway dish high speed...

I'm checked in to this before and I found out that the upload is through the phone line, that would cause me some serious trouble trying to VPN and acctually get work done. I will want to VPN and use VNC must of the time to help people with their computer problems, and to connect to servers and control them as well.

Does anyone know if there have been improvements, or have other ideas for me???


P.S. I have this posted in Tech Talk, but no one want's to say anything...usually an Otter will atleast say I'm up shit creek or something!

We had issues with satellite and VPN when we used SecuRemote as our VPN client. It had something to do with the fact that the satellite connection was already doing some "tunnelling" of it's own. SecuRemote couldn't "tunnel within a tunnel". We're using a different VPN solution now, but I don't know that that issue has been revisited.

Oh, I see you already had the same thread in this forum and you were cross-posting.

Not good.
