Re: Creating VPN

If your router has built in functionality to be a VPN server then it wouldn't be too difficult. If not, you'd be looking at either replacing the router (with one that has VPN server abilities) or adding a separate VPN server - which would require more configuration such as port forwarding, etc.

The biggest kicker is whether or not you have a static IP at home. If so, then you would easily be able to reach your VPN server from anywhere. If you have a dynamic IP, then you'd have to sign up for some sort of dynamic DNS service, get that configured on your router or VPN server, and use the URL provided to you from the dynamic DNS service to connect home. There are sometimes charges for dynamic DNS services, but there also are some that may be free.
