tunneling using wrt54g

    Hi.
    I currently have a windows box behind a firewall the does not permit udp inbound. I cannot change this.
    I have a WRT54G at home and I can install any firmware or add-ons.

    Is it possible to create a tunnel over the net between the windows box, and the WRT54G, so I can unrestricted access to the net?

    Thanks

    Chris

    So wait, you can't use UDP at all?!? If so that eliminates an IPsec VPN or Hamachi along with a number of other things... The first solution that crosses my mind that doesn't require UDP is a PPTP VPN... but if you're on a network so restrictive that it blocks all UDP traffic I'd expect them to be filtering a lot of other things as well which would probably rule out a PPTP VPN as well...

    Thanks for the reply.
    I can send udp outbound, but i cannot receive a reply.
    I can establish a tcp tunnel to another computer through the firewall fine, however it does not support udp over tcp and it also connects to computer, and I want to connect to the router.

    If i can establish a tcp tunnel (that supports udp over tcp or something similar) to the WRT54G , and then access the net via that WRT54G, so that udp can then be inbound and outbound, I would be a very happy man.

    Thanks again

    So why not follow up on the PPTP VPN idea??? The DD-WRT firmware even includes a PPTP server. (I'd recommend using the v22-r2 version currently since the latest v23 betas seem a bit buggy)
