    Anyone have ironclad configuration directions to make a BEFSX41 router run as a VPN endpoint with a dynamic IP? I have configured the router using redirects to get around the dynamic IP problem, but have had no luck getting a client configured to take advantage of this with the flexibility of hitting the router DNS endpoint from any location.

    Bottom line: I'd like to be able to access my home network from any location that my remote client can see the internet, and not be limited to running anything more than the endpoint DNS.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you use SSH Sentinel as a client, you can use the set up instructions: provided by Flogator of It is important to use a stable firmware version when setting up a VPN on the SX41. 1.45.7 is probably the best and is obtainable at Flogator's Web site:

    I've set up Sentinel-SX41 VPN tunnels using a dynamic IP and a FQDN from and it is a snap using the directions.
