This has to do with a connection from work. Though we have the ability to install software, we're really not supposed to. I can RDP to my home computer fine and they don't mind. It's just that while I'm working graves and things are slow at work I thought it might be worthwhile to finally learn more about VPNs, and what better way than to set one up?
Are you saying, however, that a client would allow me to connect to a VPN set up in my router without me having to run any special VPN software on any computers on my network at home?
If only I had a laptop... I think it would be interesting to slap a VPN client on that, take it to work and link up through the WLAN there to see if I could VPN to my network at home, assuming of course they don't have the necessary ports firewalled.
