I have a Cisco VPN client for Mac and was wondering if I could use it to resolve the following issue:
I've just purchased a USB stick broadband modem for my parents who live quite a distance from me. I wanted to use a VNC client to remote access their Mac to sort out stuff for them, but the broadand company has blocked the VNC ports and won't open them. My question is:
- can I use a VPN connection (tunnel) between my Mac and their remote Mac that will bypass the broadband service's port blocking?
- if so can I create a key/certificate that I can share between the two Macs, using just the Cisco VPN client? Or is there another way to achieve this tunneling?
