This is my first post on here, I have just ordered a RPi as Im interested in making a VPN router after reading about it in MicroMart last week.
Came on here to see what projects were going on and whether there was a project for VPN's or Routers, yes there is
I would very much like a VPN portion added to the project.
Not sure if I would be able to help out, but I'm sure I could test things. I'm far from a novice user, but when it comes to Linux I am very much a n00b.
So if you could entertain me in listening to my ramblings about what I was thinking:
My idea was that I wanted to attached my fibre modem the 'BT one' (the HG612) to my RPi and then use the Pi as Router and a VPN server, as well as having a usb nic going to my current gigabit swtich for all cabled connections.
So how likely is it that I will be able to do all three things?
I've read a fair few VPN and Router guides but none that do both and none that say how to attached a modem to it.
Sorry for the very much n00b post. Any advice is received with much thanks.
