Remote Monitoring System – VPN Connection
When you have sensorProbe+ or securityProbe devices installed at remote locations, or communicating through a dynamic IP address the VPN is a useful feature to maintain a connection between devices and AKCPro Server remote monitoring system.
If for example, your sensorProbe+ is using the internal 3G Cellular Data Modem for communications, the IP address assigned by the cell network provider will change regularly. By running the VPN service it allows the sensorProbe+ device to always be able to establish a connection back to your main AKCPro Server installation. The sensorProbe+ will know where to find your server and initiate a connection, forming its own private network between the server and your remote device.
The video below shows how to setup the VPN service and implement it on your AKCP devices.
