Using 7800N for VPN

Post by new27800N » Mon Mar 30, 2015 10:19 am

In my home network, I have internet by cable. The cable modem links to a D-Link DIR-655 which provides wired and wireless connectivty to my intranet. I want to be able to connect to my intranet whilst traveling and my thinking was to use a donated 7800N as the PPTP server by inserting it between the cable modem and the DIR-655. I'm not sure how to configure the 7800 and would like opinions as to the soundness of such a design. Yes, I could simply replace the DIR-655 with the 7800 but I wish to make minimal changes because I'll remove the 7800 upon my return.
