Azure: Point to Site VPN From mac OS?

KB ID 0001693 Problem We mac users always get overlooked. If I had a pound for every time I’ve heard ‘Yeah we don’t support macs?” I would be a rich man. But thankfully this makes us work things out for ourselves usually! So recently I did a article Azure: Point To Site VPN (Remote Access User VPN) but what if you want to use the same solution for a remote mac user? Solution Firstly you will want to download...

Veeam: Backup to Public Cloud?

KB ID 0001691 Problem I’ve always been a fan of Veeam, I’ve championed it for years, as a consultant and engineer I want solutions that are easy to deploy, administer, and upgrade, that cause no problems. Like all things that are easy to use, and gain a lot of popularity, Veeam is starting to get DESTROYED BY DEVELOPMENT. What do I mean?
