In this meeting, we'll learn about remote access options, and the great harvest that can be reaped from them, in productivity, teamwork, and access for people with disabilities. We'll also discuss setting up your own free VPN (Virtual Private Network) and how this can benefit you.
* We'll examine Logmein, including a low-cost way of using Logmein after their elimination of the "Logmein Free" option.
* We'll also study radmin, a powerful remote access tool that opens many doors.
* We'll look into using Hamachi to set up your free personal VPN.
* We'll also discuss low-cost ways of communicating remotely, including novel ways of using Skype, and sourcing good phone equipment including durable headsets.
About our speaker:
Adam Frost works as the coordinator of Computer Care and Learning, an educationally-oriented computer helping company. While some of our colleagues and competitors encourage "outsourcing" of all computer care to them, we encourage our customers to get to know their computers and train their staff in computer care. We find this helps our customers develop deep skills in computer use as a key part of business strategy and action.
Computer Care and Learning has a longstanding internship program, where we train people to be skilled computer helpers, and we also help run the Get Connected! clinic, which provides refurbished computers to customers with low and moderate incomes.

Next Exec Board Meeting

Panera Bread, Burlington MA
BNUG Executive Board Meetings are always open to
all BNUG members. You are invited to join with the
Executive Board in planning future BNUG activities
at the Board's regular monthly meeting, usually
held on the third Tuesday of each month.
IMPORTANT: Because the Executive Board Meeting date and location
may change on short notice, please let
the BNUG president know if you're coming so I can
keep you up-to-date if we make any changes.
Read the agenda for a typical Executive Board meeting here.
Our next scheduled meeting is our 30 year celebration meeting on December 6. Have thoughts on how we can celebrate? Let us know. Send your ideas to the president.
