    Hey guys.

    I have been doing a lot of reading and basically i'm have a network behind my router and would like to access that network from the outside. I am behind a dynamic IP. I flashed Viktek's Tomato mod 1.28 with VPN support.

    My understanding here is that I need to setup a server on the router and on clients, would it be possible to connect to the network using window's native vpn client?

    Sorry for the noob questions as i'm absolutely new to VPN / Open vpn and i'm not exactly experienced with networking.

    Would be best if someone could point me in the direction of a guide that is simple enough to understand and explains what i need.

    Thanks !

    It's not possible to connect using Windows' native client using TomatoVPN (or Victek's or teddy_bear's builds since they include TomatoVPN's changes). It uses OpenVPN, which is a different protocol.
