Whether you are a small firm expanding to another geographic location, or a solo attorney who needs better flexibility to work from home, there may come a time in your practice when you will need to connect and communicate between multiple office locations. While there are multiple ways to network, this article will focus on using and setting up a virtual private network. A virtual private network (VPN) is a secure communications network that tunnels through a public network, such as the Internet. Using a VPN, you can designate one office location to house the main server, or repository, for your data and allow remote office locations to work with the data through your private tunnel. Your employees can maintain a secure encrypted connection while still accessing the same information from anywhere with an Internet connection.
