    I am connecting 2 offices with 2 major programs like billing , notes and
    etc. I was told by my computer people they have to use citrix because the
    Program people prefer this instead of VPN. only. I may have got it wrong
    but maybe he said with VPN and citrix . He is also buying a separate small
    server to run the citrix and / or VPN. Can someone explain this reasons for
    Citex and/ or VPN and what they are used for beside connection to each
    office.. I want to also make sure the speed is still there from one office
    to another . Will I still have speed with either citrix or vpn or both
    Thanks to all for you kindness and help.

    One thing they certainly didn't say was "ask Evan Platt", you idiot.
