If you have multiple offices or locations, you'll probably want to connect their networks together. That way everyone can access shares and network drives, just as if each location were physically connected by a cable.

You can securely connect offices together like this by creating a virtual private network (VPN). One way to do this is to use the LogMeIn Hamachi application.
