huh ???  i like the name "wintendo" ... much better than windoze ....

for vpn stuff .... that implies security is non-existent on both ends
of the vpn connection  unless some steps are taken to make vpn more secure

and i gave up wintendo support 10-15 yrs ago ... never used it for "work"
except with msdos ways when the C compile was either ms or borland 
( gcc was barely coming out back than for pcs )

for which vpn stuff to use or not ..

c ya
