my own secure and encrypted internet vpn proxy?

Hi there!

I was wondering if it is possible to set up a service that would work like this:

  • connect from anywhere outside (e.g. public wifi)
  • start a vpn tunnel to my home's netgear WNR3500L (IP provided via a dynamic dns service)
  • access a file server on my home network
  • access the internet via my home's adsl connection


  • Do I need a separate software to be installed on the remote laptop or is it browser based?
  • I should note that WNR3500L is plugged in an ethernet port of the Thomson TG 585 v8 modem/router that my internet provider... provides(!) -- of course, wireless is deactivated on the Thomson.  That would mean that there's some setting up to be done on that one too, right?
  • Any chance there's a guide on how this can be set up?
