    Dear all,

    Does Thibor HyperWRT latest version include the PPTP server function? If yes, can the PPTP server acted as the gateway for the PPTP CLIENTS connected to it browse the Internet through WRT54G.

    The scenario as follows:

    Location A (Windows XP) -> Internet -> Location B (WRT54G PPTP Server) -> Internet (via the WRT54G instead of my original Internet connection)

    I have a Windows XP machine in Location A and would like to connect to WRT54G in Location B via pptp to establish a VPN connection. And at the same time I want to browse the Internet through WRT54G (instead of my original Internet connection)

    If the latest hyperwrt firmware supports this feature, who are the steps I need to do?

    Your prompt help is higly appreciately!

    thibor does not contain PPTP. look at his website www.thibor.co.uk for all the changes and additions.

    ddwrt does but there is a new SP2 final firmware released now.

    Not certain, but you might want to take a look at Tofu's new experimental Tomato firmware.

    You might want to ask in the Tomato forum. Here's a link to some firmware screens ....

    But Toxic's suggestion is probably the best bet for now.

    I've just upgraded 54GL 1.0 from Thibor 15c to Tomato .05 and I'm very very nice surprised :) It's very stable and fast, bandwidth and QoS charts are really amazing..

    I'll stay on Tomato for sure :)

    You can get this functionality by using SSHD on the router running Thibor 15c and using Putty.

    Basically, the steps are to activate SSHD on the remote router running Thibor 15c . Next, from the local computer, you will need to download Putty. You will log in to the remote router from Putty. Reconfigure the browser to see your remote connection (SOCKS).

    If you go to a web site such as www.whatismyip.com, you will see the remote address as your public IP.

    HINT - You only need to configure two items in Putty to make this work - the session with the host ip or name and a port number. Then also, a tunnel. Select Dynamic and the port number.
