An appropriate client-router VPN router
Posted on 2007-07-21
I bought a WRVS4400N because I would like to VPN remotely from my laptop into my small office and the 4400 had VPN server capability. However, I'm starting to wonder if the WRVS4400N is the right router for me because it supports IPSec VPN tunneling, which what I've read is more suited to router-router VPN rather than client-router VPN. I think I need a PPTP VPN router.
My long term goal is:-
1) provide VPN support for 3 clients max. All remote PCs - no remote offices
2) setup a web server in my office for external access for my customers. It will also be running Sharepoint. There will only ever be 10 users at a time max accessing Sharepoint remotely.
3) wireless capability in the office
4) support 3-4 PCs, network printer in the office.
Should I stick with the 4400? Any advice? I also have a WRT300N laying in the corner that can be incorporated into the overall architecture if need be - but only if it makes sense and not because of trying to save money.
