Hi, I will assist with this issue,
Your work company won't be able to track any activity you do on the Mac
(And it's illegal also to do that as it's your personal computer.)
Anything you do outside of vpn/remote desktop, then you are safe.
wouldnt activity still go thru company firewall since connected to VPN?
no, vpn is for only the connection to your work pc
vpn is through remote desktop program
not with any other program, such as safari
first i connect to vpn thru website
then once im connected to vpn, i open remote desktop
and can remote into work computer
yes, but that's only for setting up the vpn connection
the work computer wants secure/vpn connection between your computer and the work pc only
it's only a secure connection; everything you do is on the work pc;
right - so my understanding is that depending if split tunneling is enabled or not, my personal computer's web use is potentially forced thru the company's vpn
i'm sorry the company's firewall
even if the session is minimized
no, that's incorrect, the company cannot track your computer; they would not even to want to track outside of vpn/remote desktop as it's not secure
you need to know that when you log in a computer and if a company wants to legally track you, they would need to display the message to let you know they are tracking
it says "all activity may be monitored" as soon as i log into the vpn
AFter connecting to vpn, does it show anything different on safari?
that message is in safari
so when im connected to VPN - 2 windows stay open in safari for the VPN session
can you capture the image for me and upload at
and also a 3rd window with the web-based apps which allow me to remote desktop
http://wikisend.com/, then tell me the file ID and link
i cannot do that - this would be against my company's policy
here's how it goes though
No, just the safari window, not the work pc
the safari window is still a picture only accessible to my company's employees...
due to the fact that i have already put in my log-in credentials for VPN
so here's how it goes
i got to website
put in my log in credentials
it connects me to vpn
What if after you are connected to VPN, and then use remote desktop, then close Safari, then re-open Safari, does it still show a picture...?
2 windows open for vpn session, bascially just blank windows with a timer on it for the length of the session
then there is a 3rd window open - from which i can choose remote desktop capabilit
Close safari after you are connected to vpn, then reopen it, then see if it's not in your company page any more
it goes back to my home page
it's not showing you are on your work company/timer on the safari right?
if i close out of those two windows - the vpn session ends and the remote desktop session terminates
so no, i wouldnt show my company page
are these two windows safari or a different program?
if you don't close safari after connecting to vpn, then browse websites, does it look different than if you close safari and browse websites?
but again - if im connected to vpn - i will have to open a new browsing window - due to the fact that if i exit the vpn window, it will end my session
They cannot track you outside of your work pc (it's illegal; it's your personal computer); otherwise, they would not you work on your personal pc directly
the legality of it is not what im questioning
should not and cannot are 2 different things
many other forums i have read state that when you are connected to VPN, you are basically connected to your company's network, and therefore anything you do while connected to VPN is under your company's policy
like this one...http://www.justanswer.com/computer-networking/2xkzq-remote-desktop-work-place-via-vpn-connection.html
hmm, you can try a different browser, like Chrome or Firefox.
this isnt a question about my browser...
