Chapter 24. Making Remote Network Connections

Chapter 24. Making Remote Network Connections

In This Chapter

The networking techniques you’ve seen so far have assumed some kind of physical or local wireless connection between machines. For standard peer-to-peer and client/server networks, the computers use either a network card/cable package or a wireless NIC to connect to each other either directly or indirectly via a hub or router. What do you do, however, when a local connection just isn’t possible? For example, suppose that you’re on the road with your notebook computer and need to access a file on your network server. Or suppose that you’re working at home and need to send a file to your office machine. Is there any way to access a network in the absence of a nearby connection? The answer is that for these remote predicaments, you can connect to a network and use its resources just as you can with a local connection (albeit, in most cases, more slowly).
