Is this on the Advanced Settings > WAN > NAT Passthrough tab?

If not please post a picture of it :)

It's actually accessed from a tab on the left side that says VPN.

 

I was going to upload a picture before but when I click on picture it's asks for a url.

 

I was trying to find a pic of that on the ASUS help site for that model but couldn't yet find it.

Yes. A PPTP server would solve your problem.

 

But as I see it there is no PPTP or OpenVPN server in the router. Only L2TP, PPTP and OpenVPN passthrough.


If there was a server in the router there would be some pages in the manual about how to configure it


I might be wrong though, so I'll await the answer you get from Asus :)

I haven't heard back from ASUS support yet, but I think they said it could take a few days, in the meantime.......

 

There is a more secure solution I am researching to be able to have a remote connection between my windows phone and my home network, unless I am misunderstanding something it can use the Softether software as an L2TP server to connect to the L2TP client in my windows phone.  (my router only has an OpenVPN server)
 
Here are links to what I am researching -

Softether looks like a very good solution.

Can run on a Windows computer as well making administration and setup much easier :)
