    Encrypting a connection

    Hi, I'm looking to encrypt a permanent connection between servers, and also server to office computers.

    How can this be done? Thank you in advance!

    Using SSL to encrypt these connections can slow the server performance. I would suggest you to try following options:
    BestServerSupport | Outsourced Hosting Support and Server Management Service Provider
    WHM/CPanel | HyperV Virtualization | Plesk | WebsitePanel | Windows VPS | OnAPP Cloud | Virtuzoo
    Helpdesk Support | Cloud Administration | Dedicated Support | VPS Support

    You can let the operating system take care of it via an IPSEC policy. With SQL Server, you must have a trusted SSL certificate.

    Encrypting a connection

    I would suppose IPSEC secures the IP connection?

    It's not only for security when holding information on the server but also CCTV comes from a private line and I want to secure it equally. As so it isn't the weak link in the chain.

    You can secure server communication with Encryption technology by using an SSL Certificate but it will not secure your CCTV lines, Encryption is all about servers and browsers. I think there is a different set up to secure CCTV lines, otherwise ssl certificates are the only option to encrypt a permanent connection between servers.

    OpenVPN it's very good because is easy to install and configure and it's secure almost like IPSEC

    FBI build a backdoor on IPSEC protocol :p

    So what it's really secure in this world? -build your own system of exchange of secret keys to your connection and encrypt all what is possible with key (not with password)
