I work remotely a lot and absolutely love it. My company gave me a dell to use but I finally made the switch to mac, and will never look back. Crap, didn't mean to rhyme there ha ha. Anyway, I don't want to lug around two laptops if I can just use my Mac to access my work Vista desktop.
Currently I connect to our VPN, then use the remote control feature from my XP latptop. I really prefer the remote login program in windows as opposed to logmein.com. The speed is substantially better.
So I have a few questions:
1.) How do I connect to my company's VPN from my mac?
2.) Is there a protocol, like windows remote login, that works the same? With good speeds? Also, being able to adjust the graphics and such for a faster connection is a must.
I have read about VNC, but it sounds like its going to be very sluggish and I can't afford that. I will be connecting to my work computer over cable or dsl.
So if anyone has any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated!
