What is the minimum internet speed required to be able to VPN? I have a work cisco system vpn client 5.0.07 already installed and i used it fine from home.
But, i have to travel to west africa and will need to do some remote work. From what i learnt they have ADSL 1 m
I've done VPN via a dial up connection. It was painfully slow, but worked nonetheless.
ADSL 1m is not a screaming connection but should get you connected provided the ISP doesn't block any VPN ports.
Viewing network folders/files, etc. should be ok. If you're doing a VPN only to do remote desktop, that's probably not ideal. Something like TeamViewer.com would serve your purpose better.
