I was asked recently about how to connect to a client’s Mac OS X Server via VPN, and rather then explain it via email I thought it was best to create a short video with the steps involved.
I will share how to setup the service and how to connect to it while you are either on the road via your MacBook, iPhone and iPad.
VPN is a service that creates a ‘tunnel’ between your device and the server so the data that travels is secure. I use my VPN while I am in a café or while on holiday in a hotel.
I don’t really want/need anyone to know what I am doing on the internet, nor do I need anyone’s prying eyes on any of my clients details.
And this is one of those, no hacking needed, no geekieness, and no headaches.
This is a great app that can helps clear out your old Daylite backups automatically, I will show you how…
I have installed many Servers and I thought it was time to show my readers how easy it is to install a new server on any Mac.
This will be an easy step by step guide, so if you have any questions please comment below and I’ll get back to you.
The Server application is available from the Apple App Store at a very reasonable price of €17.99 this is pretty amazing for such a powerful ‘application’ not long ago it used to sell for over €1000
Launch the App Store application on your Mac, search for ‘Server’ and it will be one of the fist application available for purchase.
Today I installed Daylite for a user that didn’t have a Server and as Marketcircle haven’t released their Cloud service yet I had to come up with a solution for the client to have her information on the iPhone as well as her MacBook Pro.
