help with vpn
I was trying to configure vpn on my iPhone and I was searching with a hope that I can get a good guidance from here. I found some basic stuff and at the end, you guys gone private to discuss about it.
So I feel like I'm left in the middle. Lol.
So could anyone guide me for the rest? I know few things on network like IP and even I configure my modem on my own. I got 3 routers configured at my home for extending the wifi.
Hope for a good guidance.
Correct me if I missed something, but it sounds like your main goal is to be able to access some of the files on your computer from your iPhone. Is that correct? I also saw that you are using Windows XP. I wanted to caution you that Microsoft no longer provides security updates for Windows XP and it is known to be a vulnerable operating system. That fact, combined with running a VPN server from that machine, seems like a very risky situation to me.
If you just need access to some files from your computer, why not use a service like dropbox or similar cloud storage system? When you install dropbox on your Windows PC, it behaves just like a physical disk Drive, making it really easy to save files to it. Both the PC dropbox application and the iOS dropbox app are very accessible and easy to use. You would just need to place the files you wanted access to in your dropbox folder on your PC. They will be automatically synced to any other devices running dropbox. It just seems like a much easier and more secure solution if file access is your main objective. If you need access to other network resources besides just files, this may not be the best solution, but I just thought I would throw it out there
