WHS remote question.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am setting up a server for my parents.
They both have internet access at work but the websites that they can go to are limited. Facebook, ebay, amazon......these sites are all blocked.

My question is can they access the remote desktop function of the server and use it to connect to one of the home computers to access IE or FF to search the web?

If they do can their employer see the websites that they traveled to?

sorry if this is a noob question.

thanks guys

You should be able to do it (depends on whether their employer will allow them to connect the VPN link to their home PC), and their employer wouldn't be able to tell what they'd been doing from the network activity if properly set up.

But they probably shouldn't - if their employer blocks certain sites (for whatever reason) then circumventing those blocks is probably a sackable offense. Even if the employer can't see the web traffic directly an encrypted link will raise some questions, not to mention the fact that their boss will be able to see what's on their screen at any given moment. Is updating their FB status really that important?

Circumventing limited internet setups seems to be popular the last couple of weeks. I would like to re-iterate the above and also add that your parents should be urged to way the possible benefits versus the consequences (or "cost/benefit analysis") of doing something like this. The benefit is what? Checking facebook? the cost is...being fired?

I think it's actually not that difficult to block the connection to the home servers anyway using any number of methods but they really shouldn't even if it did some how connect.

Most big government agencies or companies will let you access yous WHS for files and other stuff but wont let you do remote desktop for security reasons. I know the network admin can see what they have on the screen. Not worth loosing your job over FB or Ebay.

Couldn't your parents get some smart phones and use those for their unfiltered internet?
