    Hello all. Long time member, just never post much anymore:upeyes: I just took a job that requires me to have a laptop and connect to WIFI alot as I travel all the time:sad:
    At home I use spy sweeper and Xoftspy and have no problems. Just wondering if there is anything differant that I need to use for WIFI connections? Can I use these to secure myself on my laptop and be safe or is there something else I need? What you you recommend?

    Thanx

    P.S. I am running Vista on laptop.

    If your job has a VPN setup that'd probably be the best security you could get while on the road.

    What do you mean by secure? What do you do in your job that requires a lot of travel and a laptop.

    What type of data is on your laptop.

    If you are not using a VPN to connect back to your company then that needs to be done.

    I don't think CISCO has a working VPN client yet for Vista unless it has come out in the past 3 weeks.
