Remember Shiva VPN?

Remember early SHIVA VPN days anyone?

Here is an example of Shiva VPN configurations for the client-side software, which the IT Support Team sets up. This VPN software is to be used by telecommuters and the international/national traveling Sales force. This allows for secure connections via an Internet “tunnel” when the AT & T GNS connection is established.

The VPN Manager is used to set up accounts for users, which will allow authentication and IP addressing assignments. Then, the network and email are accessible, per user permissions.
