VPN Network through a LinkSys Router
I want to set up a VPN to my office computer which is attached to the
internet through a LinkSys router. Do I need a dedicated server to connect
to or can I just connect peer-peer like I do at the office? Would I the IP
address of the Router as the IP address of the individual machines is a
pseudoaddress assigned by the router. I can find no documentation on this
:-( Any help would be appreciated.
