Remote Access to Servers...
#1
Right, Im at home, on the new laptop for work.

Ive been told to log my ID and box config to allow me to gain access to my work's servers.

Ive got those details.

Once they have them and "allow" my wireless box through, do they have access back at my system?

as if my main home PC on, could they gain access to that etc?

I dont want my collection of rare Eskimo Pr0n being stolen by a jealous hacker.  Tongue

Just dont do anywork and get fired .... its far to quiet without you on here Sad We need you back ben !!!! Big Grin

On topic though, Im guessing not ? Even if it was possible there must be some kind of privacy agreement that means your employer cant hack into your multiple albums of men in lycra !

Presume you are VPN'ing into their network via some sort of client, that will only setup a link between your laptop and their internal network. If they have remote access to your laptop via rdp, vnc etc then they could use it to get onto other machines on your lan if you have mapped drives etc or use it to then rdp into your others but unlikely you even have that turned on. Just make sure all your shares etc are passworded on your personal PC's and you should be fine

My frigging internet died as of last night, think its the router, bad timing as I have a load of penetration testing to do friday morning with Cisco ffs

whilst waiting for the toaster to pop one day, an ex muttered to herself 'come on toast'.. Sadly she then had some lemon curd on it, turned out I had misread the signs but it was too late by then.
Keep it foolish...

in an honest answer.... I have a VPN icon on my xp desktop on the laptop.... this will give me access to my company drive and outlook.

I was told the net I will be usng is theirs, my own will be faster, so will only login to check emails or grab files then jump off again.

being a net business, I need fast net.
