I’m trying to setup a router to router connection between 2 different towns.  From what I can see (don’t trust me here) I have the 2 routers setup but can’t figure out how to start the connection. There are 2 towns; Wimberley and Blanco.  The objective is to establish an always on connection between the two locations. Both locations are using DD-wrt but not open-vpn.

Wimberley:  10.10.1.x

      PPTP VPN enabled and it’s working fine as a VPN server
