I am looking for some advice.
I have a relatively small office Active Directory setup. We have pfSense with openVPN & WireGuard. I am the only remote user so far and can easily turn the VPN on and off on the laptop as required.
We are now looking to add some users who will be working from home. I would like them to be able to access their mapped drives and other resources with as little user input as possible.
In my mind it would be as simple as joining the laptop to the AD, setting up the VPN connection and that would be it. I decided to look at getting an external IT person to do it for us as I wanted to make sure it was done properly and securely. Any of the people I have spoke to have said it is likely to take days to understand the exact requirements and understand the current environment and operation model. In my mind it is a much simpler task. Our whole network is only about 20 machines. In my mind the proposed timeline seems overly drawn out, an I wrong? I would love to hear thought from people who are involved with this stuff on a day to day basis.
