SonicWALL’s software may be a little challenging to install and confusing on where to actually obtain it. There are several ways to accomplish getting the software correctly and quickly.
If you review SonicWALL’s documentation they will tell you to refer to the installation CD / media that came with your unit. I can understand how in most cases this is not ideal. The other recommendation that SonicWALL makes is to login to your mysonicwall.com account, this is the preferred method I’ve always used as you can get the latest software for GlobalVPN along with all of the newest firmware and software available by the vendor. When you configure the WLAN port on the SonicWALL, WiFiSec is enabled by default. The Global VPN Client software is recommended to securely connect wireless computers to the SonicWALL.
Chances are if you’re looking for a sonic wall VPN solution you already have an office VPN gateway to connect to. However, if you are sickly looking to cloak or hide your Internet IP address there are several excellent solutions available for you. Even though your connection to an office VPN is secure it may leave your home’s IP address still exposed when you view resources outside of your office network. While there are countless VPN solutions, even free ones, if you are looking for security in the first place you need to pick a vendor whose business model means bringing you the best security available. For this core reason we simply don’t trust free VPN solutions. Ask yourself, if someone is willing to open up gateway for you to funnel all your traffic and data through, what’s in it for them? If you are serious about your data and communications staying private and encrypted why not find a reliable VPN.
You don’t have to spend a lot each month to obtain a provider and you can trust. We’ve tested countless solutions and have narrowed down our preferred service to one specific vendor.
