I am a hobbyist looking to learn more networking. I have a Linksys router [WRT-54G ver2] that is capable of VPN passthrough. Apparently, it can only do port forwarding. Looking for some guidance on how I can connect to a desktop from outside of my home. Linksys says I am on my own on the configuration. I am moving to MS Vista Ultimate... is there anyting in the OS that would facilitate VPN? Is a VPN client needed? My next move is to establish a VLAN on my desktop and looking for reading material and/or guidance. Much thanks for any assistance.
