Remote access to LAN when public IP is dynamic?
Is it possible to provide remote Windows users access to a LAN via the Internet when the LAN itself is connected to the Internet via a SOHO router that is assigned an IP address dynamically?
An LQ thread from 2004 includes a suggestion to use VPN and DynDNS.com. Is that still a good solution? Are there any security issues?
Would there be significant advantages in using a router with VPN server capability?
I really like pix/asa devices for a firewall/vpn termination device, fortinet makes some nice products that function in a similar way and for a better price.
That being said the solution you're looking at is perfectly acceptable so long as your firewall and vpn are configured correctly. I think openvpn is about the best mix of security, ease of setup, and such of the various opensource vpn products.
I'll look into pix/asa devices.
