You need to supply a little bit more info.

A VPN is between two devices, so the first question is, what is going to be at the other end of the VPN ?

Other questions:

Static or dynamic IP addresses ?
IPSec, PPTP or L2TP ?
What are you trying to achieve ?

The more info you can provide the more likely someone will be able to help you.

Hey Chop666

The WGT624 cannot serve as a VPN endpoint. It can perform vpn pass-through though which basically means, if you have another device which performs the VPN function sitting behind the router, this would work.

If you are looking at this kind of thing, do let me know and I would post additional details on how to accomplish this.

Thank you

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Refer to the documentation for the WGT624 and give your inside vpn client or server a static IP. Then go to the DMZ section of the router configuration and input your inside computer's IP address.

There is a link for a reference manual
