I am trying to figure out what is the easiest way to setup up a VPN between two homes that I own in 2 different cities.

Most of the major cable TV operators allow to watch all Live TV channels on any device inside your home - once you leave, you only get a subset of channels.  I want the second home to connect back to the primary residence so that it appears I'm still inside my home so that I can view all the live channels (I don't have cable in the second home) - this currently works from my phone using unsecure PPTP to my primary residence with DDWRT.

I could use DD-WRT and configure with OpenVPN in both locations, but then I need to purchase and install DD-WRT for my second home and make a bunch of configurations, etc.  Since I'm a pretty busy guy, is there any type of small device or appliance that I can purchase for both locations and plug the spare Ethernet ports and configure a VPN tunnel with minimal effort?


If you need further details, please let me know.

Thanks in advance!

From the Forum Rules -

I believe that what you want to do would be outside your cable company's T&Cs. If you disagree with my opinion please send a PM to any of the site's global Mods or Admins.
