Join us on September 29th in Las Vegas as we gear up for the SMB Nation conference with a Masters Class in Implementing and Supporting Remote Access brought to you by members of our staff.
Last year we had a ball, training all day and freely pouring beer into the night. A true geek festival. We’re going to do it all over again. Since last year there’s been a dramatic proliferation of demand for remote access by your users. During this pre-day event we’re going to deep dive into the stuff that makes remote access to network resources reliable, secure and functional for your end users. When you implement this stuff you’ll be the hero! All the content is going to be delivered by Third Tier staff. This is your chance to pick their brains in person. Speakers include: Brian Higgins, Jeremy Anderson, Steve Banks, Amy Babinchak, Cliff Galiher and David Shackelford. That’s a lot of big brains for one room!
Space is limited. Last year we sold out! Registration is about to open. So save the date and keep an eye on this blog.
Here’s what we’re going to cover:
8:30am – doors open, meet & greet, welcome
9:00am – The day begins with DNS. A fitting start to a day full of understanding remote access technologies. DNS is the foundation to all network communications and we’ll show you how the packets flow, which DNS entries are critical and how to create them.
10:15 – break (15 min)
10:30 – So now you’ve got your DNS records in place and understand which remote access technologies require which kinds of records. This bring us to security. In this session we’ll demonstrate how to secure VPN remote access using Radius. You’ve seen that Radius option in your router, in your firewall and even in your server. So why aren’t you using it to secure remote access to your network? We’ll show you how it’s done.
12:00 – lunch break (30 min) Vendors Lunch.
1:00 – Remote Web Access is a very popular feature of Small Business Server. In this session we’re going to tear it down bit by bit and show you exactly how it works. There’s no OZ behind the curtain. Instead there’s built-in Windows technology. Leave from this session not only able to troubleshoot RWA but also able to create an RWA like interface for your non-SBS domains.
2:30 – break (15 min)
2:45 – Tablets, netbooks, iPads, Smart Phones, Apple, Microsoft, Android these devices are everywhere! Which apps can really empower your end users? Which apps are secure and can you make them more secure? In this session we’ll demo a bunch of stuff that it working in the real world for real clients.
4:15 – Final thoughts, dismiss
Later that same evening: PARTY with Third Tier at the local Pub.
