      Hi Mike

      Do you want to be able to VPN onto your Sky Connection?

      Re: Virtual Private Networking (VPN)

      Hi did you get anywhere with this?

      I would like to set up a vpn tunnel between my router (DG834G) and a friends (DG834GT provide with SKY Broadband).

      The first problem we have is that there doesn't appear to be a wy to set up VPN on the DG834GT. Is there some hidden trick.

      The next problem would be setting both routers up. Any tips would be gratefully accepted.

      Manolard: Unfortunately you can't connect these two routers together via vpn, you would have to make the computers connect via software.

      I am not up on what flashing the Sky router with the normal netgear firmware does, but assuming it adds back in the VPN control panel then you could connect them up. obviously this breaks the terms and conditions of the sky broadband connection.

      You can find instructions on setting up a vpn between two compatible netgear boxes here

      Hi,

      that was a quick response. Thank you.

      "..you would have to make the computers connect via software"

      What did you mean by this?

      The goal is for the 2 of us to have a shared folder for a project we are planning to working on together. Is there another way you know of?

      Thanks

      Re: Virtual Private Networking (VPN)

      Right, before I go any further, depending on your project you may want to consider using a hosted service such as Mediamax. you can get 25GB of storage for free. There are several others out there too.

      Browsing and copying files via VPN's over two ADSL connections can be painful - excruciating in fact!

      Depending on what you are sharing, you may well find that doing it via FTP is much better - set one machine up running a password protected FTP server and the other machine can access them without the VPN overheads. Try This

      If you are a glutton for punishment, or if you prefer you can create a VPN from computer to computer. The way to do this varies depending on what operating system you are using, but either way you need to make one machine the Server and the other the Client. Obviously the machine with the shared folder on it is going to be the Server - to set it up in Windows XP take a look at these instructions.

      You also need to make sure that you map the ports on the router (noted at the bottom of the instructions above). You'll find that under FIREWALL RULES on your router. You need to ALLOW incoming traffic - the correct ports are on the drop down box on the sky router already.

      Once you have your Server configured and running, and you router is set up to pass the incoming connections to that machine then you need to set up your client - follow the instructions here

      The one issue you will come across here is that Sky only provide a Dynamic IP address so if the Server is at that end you'll need to sign up for dynamic DNS provider such as DynDNS -- Dynamic DNS, E-Mail Delivery and Other Services and then enter your new hostname into the Dynamic DNS section on your Router.

      It is this hostname that you need to enter into the client setup, rather than an IP address.

      Hope this helps, it's quite a big subject.

      or if security isn't too important you can simply share a folder in MSN messenger
