We are starting a small company. We are only 5 or 6 people and we'd like to share outlook tasks, calendar, contacts, work on common word files, etc... All this with 128 or more bits encryption. Thank you very much in advance,

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You mean that all “shareholders” will work from home, so you need a VPN between homes – kind of “p2p VPN”, with different ISPs, etc…?

    You really need to get a bit more specific with your question, as others have suggested. Are you going to have a server? Will it be a physical server in one location, or a hosted server? How are you going to be handling your e-mail? Will it be via a central mail server with your domain name or will it be separate POP accounts with the same or various ISP's? If you do not have a server, will the VPN circuits be going to one central place, or will they be created as needed to various locations? You mention sharing calendars, contacts, and tasks with Outlook. The only real sane way to do this is using an Exchange server. Sharing files can be done, obviously, with a server, but it can also be handled by a PC that everyone has access to. What you probably need to do is to sit down and list your needs--what you need to do, and who needs access to what. Then find a few tech firms that specialize in small businesses and ask for a proposal that will enable you to do what you need to do from each. Then sit down and analyze what comes in, selecting the proposal tha seems to most closely fit your needs as you see them.
