A company I work for has a VPN connection at the office and from time to time I need to pull firmware, software, or various documents from them. Other times there are a couple Linux servers on the local network that I need to work on so I can either SSH from the outside or create a VPN connection and hit the devices through the local network. The amount of data I am pulling from the local network has become more frequent so I needed to find a way to not have to create a VPN connection from my laptop so often and was thinking that it would probably just be easier to connect my Linksys WRT600N router running dd-wrt firmware to the office VPN server. This way I would always have a connection to the office without having to interrupt work and create a PPTP VPN connection.
