Superfluous technology strikes again.

After upgrading our DSL router, and poking around in its web configurations, I discovered that it now has VPN support. And that it's very easy to get working. And it works with pretty much any PPTP VPN client, including the built in one on this work laptop. It's a much better way of transferring files between boxes than sending emails or leaving them on the ftp server.

So I now have a secure tunnel from my desk here at work to all the servers at home.

Including my MP3 jukebox.

What's wrong with rsync over ssh? Cygwin lets you use it on Windows boxes.

I'll know who to blame when there's no bandwidth in the office then.

How confident are you over it's security? And that of the client for that matter?

I bow to your tech-godhood-ness. Offerings at the altar are in the icon.
