I did a search, but #1 didn't see the exact answer and #2 couldn't bump the older thread.
basically, I just want to know if I put in an OpenVPN server...does it have to live at the edge or can it be behind the router...
On the client side, I've been pretty happy with Tunnelblick.
Here's a better post:
Issue: I'd like to access Hulu, TV streaming content while outside the USA
Proposed Solution: I'd like to setup a OpenVPN server at a friend's house. Friend's house because of higher upstream bandwidth.
Restraint: I can't do willy nilly to my friend's router. I can't just change it out to a DD-WRT device. I can have him put in a forwarding rules.
Question: Will putting an OpenVPN server like
WAN <--> Friend Router <--> OpenVPN server
allow me to come from the Internet (outside of USA), and then out to USA sites and bounce back to me even though my OpenVPN server is not on the edge of my friend's Internet connection?
I am going to be traveling much more outside of the USA. I've moved away from a Tivo/Slingbox, so now I am much more reliant on strictly Internet contentn
In the past, I've spent a weekend setting up ssh tunnels and proxies for particular applications. Now, I'd rather just tunnel everything through a VPN.
