Default VPN`s

Perhaps a workshop on VPNs and why you can`t get on some sites, even though those same sites recommend using VPNs

There's an article about VPNs in the current issue - 532 - of CA on page 50. It's their main feature. Maybe that's why WU hasn't done anything similar?

We did a VPN special earlier this year:

Will definitely be returning to the subject soon, but unfortunately CA has stolen our thunder with its new issue!

Arrow Re: VPN`s

Just been browsing that article today,and its given me a few ideas (and clarified some points) of how to utilize the Feature. Much appreciated

If there was to be a future workshop on VPN in CA or WU How about how to use it using a Tablet? Do not think This angle has been covered? Surely there is an App for that?

Default Re: VPN`s

Neither magazine has an answer, probably because neither of them knows what it is! Sometimes this site is OK with a VPN, sometimes it isn't which is annoying given that as an http site, it's unprotected/insecure. If nothing else this site could at least be consistent.
