I'm really confused about some related things in the Vpn uses.. especially in sharing only the internet & accessing all the resources(printer, files..etc) that are available in the network and be like your are really in the same local network(even if u are away)..
1a) I read that when u use the SSL Vpn(tunneling & encryption, like the one that is implemented in the OpenVpn ) u will only be able to access the web related app(only routing the internet traffic, like the commercial vpn app 'Hotspot Shield'). so, this is mean u can't access the other network resources such as printer,files & other stuff.
Having direct access only to the web-enabled SSL applications also means that users don’t have access to network resources such as printers or centralized storage and are unable to use the VPN for file sharing or file backups.
Is this true !!? If it is, then if I want to use the OpenVpn I can use it only for routing my internet traffic, I can't access any files ?? I can't be able like I'm in my network. right ??
1b) What is the uses of the 'SSl Vpn' ?? If '1a' true (only routing without accessing network resources).
1c) Also, if '1a' is true. How can I then make a vpn that does provide a network resources plus a routing internet traffic for sure :) ?
