    This weekend I will be setting up a VPN between my friend's office and my home office. This is my first time setting up one so all the help will be welcome.

    At my friend's office:
    T-1 connection-->RV082--->LAN

    At my house:
    1.5M/384L DSL connection--->I two options here(BEFSX41 or a Monowall box)--->LAN

    My DSL has dynamic IP at this time but will get static IP if needed.
    Also I would like my LAN to use the T-1 as the internet gateway. Is this possible??

    erm well you have to go over the internet to get to the T1 gateway. but it is possible yes. your bandwidth may suffer as VPN tunnels encrypt the data. but if thats what you want.

    you dont need a staic IP just setup DDNS on a router or m0nowall.

    check out

    This is an old site we have mirrored. it is not maintained but has some good info. and it has info on the BEFSX41-RV082 gateway-gateway

    Which one should I go with, monowall or the linky?

    I know this will hurt the bandwidth but it is just an experiment. BTW how bad you think it would be?

    The noise you get from using vpn will vary with how well the initial service provided by your ISP is configured...

    Here's a link to show how you can configure a site-to-site vpn using a linksys and and smc router; the linksys router configuration gui is similar to the RV0XX series:,15615747

    Post back and we'll see what we can do...
