Hey fellas!

1. My office internet is powered by an ERLite-3
2. There are a couple of devices on my LAN that can only be accessed via local IP (think Android ADB)
3. I would like to allow 2-3 remote users who live geographically far away to access the office local network so they can access these devices. They are trusted users.

What is the simplest solution here? I think a VPN is the right tool for the job - if so what are the steps of the simplest ERLite-3 VPN option for the described problem?

Appreciate your expertise!

you load the vpn client on the remote machines and configure the vpn access on the router. review the router docs for details

Thanks for the reply!

It looks like I L2TP/IPSEC is available and hardware accelerated, would using that directly on my ER3L be the best option for my purposes?

Hello

 

The solution doesnt require additional investments and using IPSEC is very secure.

I would start with this solution.
If people complain about ease of use you can look into other ways of doing things.

 

Hth!
