Recommended VPN Server for Home Network
I want secure access to a few different services on my home network (specifically, a samba share on a Linux host and RDP on a windows host). My home network is simple: everything sits on a flat network behind a Linksys NAT gateway and I subscribe to a dynamic DNS service so I can always find my IP.
My first thought was to access these services via VPN. My Linux host is almost running 24x7 so I figured I could install a VPN server on it and setup port forwarding on the NAT router. I looked at OpenVPN but I was turned off by the fact that it required its own client software. When I'm away from home I'll probably be on a Windows client and I won't always have the ability to install client software.
Any recommendations for a secure VPN server that works with Windows' VPN client? Or any other solution for that matter?
