hi this is my first post, i am doing a school project on
the system requirements for a home worker wishing to set up Internet and WWW access, including:
• hardware;
• software;
• communications requirements.

what would these include? i think i have most of the requirements but i may be missing some...
thx :)

home worker may also require software to set up a VPN (virtual private network) to his/her company's intronet server to access company files.

It may be useful to know that if a secure connection was needed, for example to directly interact with your bank to pay in or withdraw funds to pay wages, a dial-up account would be set up. It would not be done via the internet.
