Hello all, I have a job where I need to access the internet over a secure connection. I use too much bandwidth for mobile broadband to be a viable option (about 30 gigs a month travelling).

Is there anyway to access the internet through a public wifi hotspot, routed through my home internet? The information I am handling is anything but sensitive (I mean, not even close at all. Let's just say I fill in rudimentary measurement data for flooring with no names or companies ever included, at all.). But my employer is a bit OCC and requires us to have a secure connection.

In other words, I'm not so much worried about a secure connection as I am appeasing my boss with a secure connection so I can do more work while on the road.

Any help would be fantastic.

Try something like this: Defending against insecure hotel networks with a VPN.

The article may be from 2008, but the method is still the same. The simplistic overview helps to understand it better.

You're quite welcome. I hope it solves your issue.
