    wifi question

    will VPN software protect you when using public (unprotected) wifi networks?

    They make it sound great (of course LOL)

    I have been using it to watch British programing I like online now that I no longer get BBC at home....

    Works great to hide IP addy's, that much I know, but I was wondering about its effectiveness on open wifi networks for security?


    warren, crissy, et. al., where are our network gurus LOL

    I'm on the road pretty often, it would be great to feel safe accessing email accts and other pw protected stuff (terra, chat etc) and not worry about unprotected networks

    Although my networking guru status probably lapsed several years ago, I can tell you that yes it will work. It will not keep people from finding your password list stashed under your keyboard though.
