I am new to Untangle, but thus far I am greatly impressed by its feature set and underlying objectives.. I am curious about the following implementation, and whether or not Untangle would be a fit.. or if there are other suggestions..
I have a 3-5 person company where none of the people is co-located.. (3 timezones)... My ultimate goal is to allow all of the users access to several servers (accounting / CRM / file / other) from any place on earth and still get access (note that I am considering having the Untangle gateway co-located with servers).. My question is I have seen some services being sold online ( accessmylan, for example), that I believe could fit my needs.. however, I am curious whether or not an untangle gateway server could achieve the same result.. At the end of the day, I suppose it is really a deployment of OpenVPN server with clients. That along with their servers probably have more bandwidth than our internet connection..
So in general, I understand that Untangle was designed with the mindset of an undistributed organization that can allow the occasional user to VPN into the lan... my question is ... what happens is there is no co-located organization? I have been using Hamachi.. however, this product doesnt seem to scale the way we need going forward (nor does it have continued Mac / Linux support)...
any insight or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
