We talk a lot about VPN’s and reverse proxies over here at this blog. Understanding them may not be on your priority list, but once understood, you can really begin to realize how beneficial setting up tunneling to different networks can really be, especially in the world of security.
A VPN can be extremely beneficial to get access to internal network assets or to emulate a connection coming from a different network. VPN’s, or Virtual Private Networks, are often used to connect to work networks, but do not discount the benefits to connecting to your home network or even a friends, a neighbors, or sets of networks through sets of others.
Setting up and getting it all in place is incredibly easy too, literally taking minutes. And Hak5 has the full guide on how to do it.
