Gbridge is a free, P2P VPN-like service that lets you sync folders, share files, chat and VNC securely between two or more computers. OK, so you aren't likely to yank out the corporate VPN and replace it with the peer-to-peer likes of Gbridge. But this service is still a highly creative example of what can be done by extending Google's wares, in this case Google Talk, that is sure to warm any network professional's heart. Plus, it can be a useful tool for remote control access for troubleshooting, or a low-cost VPN for teleworkers in tiny remote offices. Gbridge supports all sorts of applications.
