Site to site VPN with dynamic IP addresses

2009/03/13

I have the problem that most users on the internet have of wanting to have a VPN connection between their house and their relatives for easy file sharing and for the ability to repair their computers through VNC if possible.  Both residences have dynamic IP addresses.  This makes it hard to run most VPN software because most require at least one static IP address.

My solution was two Linksys WRT54GL routers running DDWRT.  In addition the routers run DDNS with no-ip.com, have custom OpenVPN scripts and dnsmasq.

Here is a great howto that i found on the openvpn setup
