If you have one of the larger builds of dd-wrt then you probably have PPTP support built into the firmware. This will allow you to move VPN connections to the router instead of having to connect from each desktop which will securely make the remote network seem like part of the local network.
Connecting your iPhone to the office VPN is easy to configure and will allow you to be productive outside the office with ease. Using the PPTP VPN service on your iPhone will allow you to perform tasks as if you were sitting at your desk in the office. In the below scenario we explain configuring a PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) VPN connection from your iPhone to a Cisco RV016 that is already configured to accept PPTP connections located in your office. The VPN (Virtual Private Network) configuration allows you to enable and disable the connection with ease as you will want it disabled if you are not using the connection to sa ve on bandwidth.
I have configured a Linksys WRT600N to connect using PPTP to my company’s VPN server in the past as noted in this previous article. I have since swapped out the Linksys WRT600N with a Linksys WRT54GS because I wanted to replace the antennas with larger antennas to work on getting better wireless coverage in my workshop in the basement and with the primary wireless router being located on the second floor of my house I needed to do numerous things to squeeze as much signal as possible. I also noticed numerous other issues with the WRT600N including the router locking up on a regular basis as well as dropping connections.
