VPN Router - Machine accessed by many outside users?
« เมื่อ: อา. 03 ก.พ. 2019 เวลา 22:54:16 »
For a small business, I would like to set-up one of the computers in our office for a few members of staff who want to work remotely. Can I use a VPN router to have multiple people access this computer at once? Is there a limit to the number of people who can be on the computer at one time?

Yes you can, the limit will depend on the solution you choose, on Cisco routers for example, depending on the type of license you acquire you may be limited to 4 users via VPN (meaning you'll have to buy an additional license if you want more ppl get in).

Oh, just to clarify,you don't really need to use VPN in order to get multiple users accessing the same pc, but I assume you want it for security reasons.

Thank you, RaDiKaL_. How could I allow multiple-user access without (as much) security? (Sorry for my lack of knowledge on this subject, just trying to determine the best way.)

The vpn is only half the issue. What exactly you mean "access". Fileshares and such are pretty easy to have multiple people. If you mean remote desktop then you quickly run into how you would expect to do that and not have the users get in each others ways.

The solution for that part will be the same as if you had the users bring their PC into the office and did it from there..all the VPN part does give access to the local network.

To run without the vpn you would map whatever ports your solution uses though the router so the server can be access directly from the internet. Generally this is not done because there historically been lots of holes in thing like microsoft filesharing

Thank you, Bill001g. We have a program on one computer and we would like our employees to be able to access and run it remotely. We're just not sure how best to do that. Unfortunately, putting the program on each computer is not possible. Thanks again for your help.

If this is not a question of security, then you should simply look into RDP (Remote Desktop) or Terminal Server programs/solutions for users to the dedicated remote machine. It is a very simple task to implement and maintain and often very successful and useful.
