Since the VPN server setup for the WZR-HP-G300NH is not explained in the manual, here's a sticky for the setup. If you have problems or questions, please post in a separate thread.
DynDNS.com and TZO.com have Dynamic DNS services that link your public IP address to yourhostname.domainname.com, so you don't have to know your public IP address to access your network. The DDNS client on the router updates the IP address given to the DDNS provider's server when it changes. This means that yourhostname.domainname.com will direct traffic to your public IP address, even after the IP address changes, assuming the DDNS client is set up correctly. TZO.com is a paid service, but DynDNS.com offers free DDNS services. The setup listed here is for DynDNS.com, since it's free and I've never used TZO.
This is the setup for DynDNS. We have no control over DynDNS, so we cannot support it beyond basic setup:
You now have yourhostname.domainname.com set up, and can continue with configuring the router for DDNS:
A basic VPN setup is pretty simple to configure:
Setting up the client computer to connect to the VPN server is simple too:
Once this setup is done, that computer will be able to connect to the VPN server when it is connected elsewhere on the internet. To connect, click Start->Connect to, then select the name you set up in Company Name. You'll be prompted for the username and password that you set up in the PPTP User List.
