I travel and use open wifi networks a lot. Given the nature of my work I want to route all my traffic thru my home network. My home office is well equipped to handle such a connection.
Basically I need to route all traffic (all ports, udp and tcp) over SSL to my home network so its like im sitting on the same subnet. My home router is on a static IP and supports IPSec and SSL VPN as an endpoint.
Right now i'm using SSH and tunneling ports one by one but its far from elegant and annoying to setup even with batch files. I have not experimented with VPN. Does this sound possible and worth looking into with OpenVPN as the client on my laptop connecting to my router as the VPN endpoint? I also have a 2008 R2 server if I need a different endpoint but prefer to use my router.
