The advantage of having iPad applications is that they are easy bring home with you. However, we want to always ensure that the communication between your iPad/iEHR app and your office's MacPractice Server is secure.
In order to connect to your office from a remote location, it is required to connect via a Virtual Private Network, otherwise known as a VPN.
A VPN is a piece of software that secures the method of communication between your network and your office's network. It tells the office's network that you are authorized to be there, thus allowing network traffic to flow.
For assistance in setting up a VPN, or for recommendations on possible VPN solutions, please contact a local network professional. Due to the unique needs of each office, MacPractice Support cannot assist with configuring a VPN.
