i found this http://www.wifi.com.ar/english/doc/network/putty/
sounds like it would work for general internet surfing
anyone tried this using PuTTY to do this?
my understanding of the method:
use PuTTY on computer back home with running remote access software
log into computer remotely
i don't really understand how this gets the encryption between a laptop and access point
i guess it sends encrypted instructions to host computer over the internet, but i don't see the difference between this and just calling up a remote session on VNC
fyi, i haven't looked really hard at any of this enough to start understanding, nor have i tried it to get a feel for what is going on
anyone with experience or comments?
