I realize most of you are highly technical folk. I am not. Just granted VPN access by my hospital. I use a Mac (OS10.6).Our IS folk have no clue how to set up Mac with Cisco AnyConnect to make a VPN
I don't know how to connect from my Mac to my PC workstation in my office.
My PC workstation supposedly was set up so that it will allow me to connect to it.The PC Is on, not hibernating.Running XP
I tried using Microsoft Remote Desktop and could not get it to work.
I found out that Mac OS 10. 6 has VPN interface build in
However when I selected VPN in my Network preference panel, I did not know which of the following three types of VPN to use Cisco AnyConnect
Mac OS gives me choice between a) Cisco IPsec b)PPTP c) L2TP over IPsec.
What do I use?
Can you help me identify the questions I have to ask my IS folks at my hospital?
I was told nothing
One of the three types of VPN available to me asks for Authentication of something called Shared Secret. What is that?
I have the IP address of my workstation and , of course, I know my log in name and password.
What else do I need?
I really need baby steps to walk me through this.
