I work in the IT department and a local University. Most of the professors have laptops and like working at home. They have network drives located on OUR network... and they arn't connected to it at home. So they use VPN (Virtual Private Network).
They Virtually connect to a Private Network. They connect to the Universities network so they can access their network drives from home.
I haven't quite used it to use the Universities ISP, only for networked drives
So I don't know how that would work.
But yes, that does suck that you can't download torrents.
Is it that you can't download torrents, or that you can't use a torrent downloader, like bittorrent.
They're controlling what you download and that's lame, switch. We have ATT and they let anything slide
