Description An aim of the MeDiMed project is usage of current information and medical technology possibilities for the quality of medical surgery and medical care enhance, and improvement of conditions for research and medical students' tuition. Current communication technologies level allows expert centers establishing, which provide sophisticated services in radiology, nuclear medicine, etc. In the future, connection of other healthcare facilities is expected, especially outside of Brno hospitals, smaller healthcare organizations and individual offices. Smaller institutions usually do not have a suitable network termination element for the IPSEC tunnel and the connection is usually solved by software on all workstations used for communication with MeDiMed. This solution is sometimes difficult to manage and requires local user response. This article shows an option of shifting network connection configuration from the client station to an external device that will be much easier for central management.
