Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

 

What are you looking to accomplish?  If you're wanting to do it on your local LAN then a VPN probably isn't the answer.

You want to access your LAN when you are away from home?

 

What do you want to access?

 

If you can't forward ports on your router you're not going to be able to use any VPN type method to connect, unless the router supports VPN access.

 

You might be able to use TeamViewer to access a computer on your home LAN remotely.  TeamViewer is free for personal use.  TeamViewer would allow you to control a remote machine without too much trouble.

 

You have to remember that anything you are pulling from your LAN over the Internet will be limited by your upload speed.  Normally the upload speed is a fraction of what your download speed is.  For example, I have 75MB down and 5MB up.  Downloading a movie file, for example, might take a few minutes, but uploading it would take an hour.

I DONT need to acces my lan while away. I use a Virtual Router program , because i want to use my pcs internet. Is there something to make it at least little bit like vpn? Something to "protect" the router.

Internet Connection Sharing sounds like what you're talking about, you want to share one machine's Internet connection with other machines.

 

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is used to connect securely over the Internet.

 

What are you trying to protect the machine running the Virtual Router from?  (internal or external)

 

A firewall will protect the machine running the virtual router from external issues.

What firewall you recommend? And what are the internal issues?

 

 

EDIT: When a device is connected to the virutal router, will anti-virus see that something that is harmful is downloaded and block it?
