    Hello!

    Looking for advice. I need to setup a VPN so that I can access an iMac desktop from the road. I take my MacBook Pro when traveling.

    It's only a single iMac desktop for now so I was thinking a VPN service initially but since I may eventually get more PC besides the iMac, I was wondering what is a recommended VPN router (possibly that has wireless access point also) that has a solid Mac VPN client?

    Thank you for the help!
    Bob

    Bummer I think after rereading that article it refers to "Lion to anything" and not "non-Lion to anything" as it is iCloud-based.

    Perhaps until I can invest in upgrading the hardware I need to temporary look at hosted VPN such as Logmein Hamachi.

    I read other threads on the Cisco's RV series but didn't get warm feeling on an otherwise affordable priced equipment such as their RV180w. Also couldn't pinpoint the exact challenges I might encounter when using OSX clients.

    I also read the review of TP-Link 6020 (which I think there's a newer 6120 out) but if it is not future-proof (IPv6) and also if I augment with AP then not being able to keep guest network separate might not be good.

    Sigh, I wish it was easier!

    Hey Bob,

    If you do not mind leaving your iMac running, then these guys have a killer solution for Apple users:

    GreenWorldSoft

    VPN Server for Mac OSX

    Total cost $9

    They also have a great youTube demo video.
