CompTIA NET+ Cert, Part 07 of 17: Remote Networking

with Patrick Loner

In this course we’ll discuss different types of remote networking. Remote networking increases flexibility and mobility and as such is a big part of today’s network infrastructures. You’ll learn that there are two basic types of remote networking, remote node and remote control. Remote node is implemented through the use of dial-up and or VPN connections and extends the network to the remote device allowing that device to access resources after authenticating itself and being authorized to do so. Remote control on the other hand allows the remote control of a computer and is as if I were sitting in front of the computer. Both are very beneficial in different situations. You will learn the various aspects of a VPN connection, its authentication mechanisms and protocols so that you are now familiar with the most common method of connecting machines remotely to the corporate network.
