I just got a Netgear FVL328 and wanted to be able to connect to my home network using this VPN router when I'm at starbucks/the airport/etc.
I've set up very simple networks before but I have very little knowledge with VPN. I've studied it a little over the internet and found protocol names like IPSec and PPTP but obviously that isn't enough to be able to set up this router.
I downloaded the router's manual from netgear's website and still don't know what to set up to achieve these very simple things
- set up the router to accept a user named
user and password
password to connect to my home network.
- set up a client to connect to this router without using netgear's VPN client.
You can assume I have a static IP from my ISP and minimal security is needed.
Let me know if I'm unclear.
Thank you very much.
EDIT: Also I just found out that there's a notion of VPN client hardware too. If this router is one of those, then I guess I'm out of luck.
