At present I have Gargoyle setup on my WNDR3700 to connection to a VPN provider in order to provide a little privacy. However this prevents me from connecting remotely to my home network. Previously I used several methods used over time: ssh into a LAN host, LAN host providing OpenVPN service, router acting as an OpenVPN server.
The question I have is:
Is it possible to route traffic you'd want privacy maintained upon (most comms) through the external VPN provider whilst still allowing remote connections onto the network? In an ideal world I'd want all traffic going onto the internet to pass through the external VPN but be able to VPN from external (Tablet, Phone, Work) back to my LAN to access resources, maintain and monitor.
My initial thoughts are that the WNDR3700 cannot do this as, if it maintains the client connection to the external VPN, it cannot then listen on the normal WAN IP address for ssh or OpenVPN traffic or pass it through. But by the router not maintaining the VPN link I am then open to traffic sneaking out unprotected onto the internet.
My networking knowledge is basic beyond flashing the firmware and passing through ports etc. so there may well be some networking magic that allows this to happen on the one device.
